6. Nikesh Shukla
This week we're in a top secret London interrogation room location with Nikesh Shukla, the author, broadcaster and essayist. His third novel, The One Who Wrote Destiny was published to great acclaim this Spring. Nikesh is also the creator and editor of the bestselling essay collection The Good Immigrant. We talked to him about childhood reads, early inspirations and literary annoyances (n.b. if you're Jonathan Franzen you might not want to listen to this one).
