eimear mcbride

eimear mcbrideThe first episode of Unsound Methods in 2019 is up now and this month we are delighted to be joined for a second time by Eimear McBride.

In episode 12 we spoke to Eimear alongside Noémi Lefebvre but we didn’t have much time to speak to them before that evening’s event, so Eimear was kind enough to come to the studio for a more extended chat.

Among other subjects in this episode we discuss Eimear’s process, experimental fiction and the role of the novel in modern life.

Eimear’s debut novel, A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing, won the inaugural Goldsmiths Prize in 2013 and the 2014 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction. Thanks again to Eimear for her generosity with her time.

Guest spot on SE daily podcast

I recently had the chance to talk with Jeff Meyerson and appear as a guest on his SE daily podcast.

Jeff came across an article I had written for Flux Magazine about the future of AI and religious indoctrination and we had a fairly wide-ranging conversation covering everything from extremism and machine learning to the nature and manipulation of perception online.
