I’ve been collecting interviews with Astrid Edwards – bibliophile and podcasting extraordinaire.
She’s an incredible interviewer so I was thrilled when she asked me to be interviewed. Last October I had the privilege of seeing her interview the great Richard Fidler at Ubud Writers and Readers Festival. Amazing! Astrid is a huge supporter of writers, especially women writers, and I’m proud to call her a friend and colleague (she’s one of only four friends whom I’ve seen since March!). Astrid is also a contributor in Growing Up Disabled in Australia, my second book, which is out in February 2021. Listen to The Garret podcast and Anonymous Was a Woman.
Astrid interviewed me on The Garret podcast which aired early this year. I’ve been listening to The Garret for years, I love to hear writers’ processes. This was the first time she and I properly sat down to chat, actually, despite meeting before. Listen to the podcast below, and read the transcript here.
In May we had a virtual afternoon chat for The State Library of Victoria.
Most recently, Astrid coordinated an interview for Anonymous was a Woman, the podcast she does with Jamila Rizvi about books. I talked to Jamila about being a woman of colour and also two books I’ve read by women of colour this year. Listen below.
Thanks so much for chatting with me Astrid. You are a star!
