Episode 2: Sam Lipsyte

In this discussion with author Sam Lipsyte, hosts Liz Hynes and Daniel Smith chronicle Lipsyte’s journey from his role as the “Lead Screamer” for the punk-rock band Dungbeetle to the publication of his third novel, The Ask. They grapple with the central themes in Lipsyte’s work, including gentrification, belonging, and authenticity. Also, they wonder whether his stuff is “Jewish” or not. Stay tuned to the end to hear a rare recording of Dungbeetle.

Note to listeners: the lead-in refers to this as the “inaugural episode” of the n+1 podcast. It isn’t. (Here’s the real first episode.) We appreciate your understanding.

Production by Heathre Contant and WNSR New School Radio.
