Today’s guest is fiction writer Talia Lakshmi Kolluri, author of the new collection What We Fed to the Manticore. In our interview we discuss animal senses, meaning and purpose, as well as the research she did to learn to see the world through nonhuman eyes. Toward the end she reads an excerpt of one of her stories, the first time we have done a reading on this podcast but hopefully not the last! Interview starts at 4:18.
