Uzoamaka Maduka, The American Reader

Welcome to Late Night Conversation! This week Doug’s guest is Uzoamaka Maduka, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The American Reader. Doug and Uzoamaka discuss the inception and rapid ascent of The American Reader, the dumbing down of American literature, the silent generation biding its time, and why so many publications would benefit from a primer in architecture and interior design. 

 

“You walk into a room and you hear people talking, you either believe them or you don’t. There are tells when somebody is lying or is hiding something or is merely evasive….They don’t really have the evidence to back it up. But they’re fudging numbers and they’re making it seem as if it’s the case. We had a unique insight into the falsehood of their claims because we were exactly the people they were talking about and nothing they said about us was true.”
