[Reading Writers] Jared Wilson on reading to be a better listener

Reading Writers episode 10 with Jared Wilson

Can reading help you become a better listener—and what can we gain from reading about the experiences of people of different ethnicities or backgrounds? Today, Jared Wilson and I discuss this and more in part two of our discussion on Reading Writers.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Why Jared’s becoming a comic book guy (again), and how he has to force himself to avoid reading ruts;
  • What he learned reading about the science of fear; and
  • Why it’s a great idea to read books like Ta-Neshi Coates’ Between the World and Me.

A few of the books and resources discussed in this episode

What’s happening on the next episode of Reading Writers?

The next episode is going to be a slight break in format as I share a bit about how I find time to read, and share a little about a few of the books I’m reading right now.
