Scaachi Koul Answers Weird Questions

About writing, deep dish, and poop.

Welcome to the first edition of Writers Answer Weird Questions, a new podcast here at the Chicago Review of Books. Each episode, I meet up with a writer at an independent bookstore in Chicago to talk about their book — and ask a bunch of weird questions, including “What’s the weirdest thing you own?”

In this episode, I was lucky enough to chat with the brilliant Scaachi Koul, author of One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter. We met up at Sandmeyer’s Bookstore in Chicago’s South Loop during the Printers Row Lit Fest. Tune in below!

On Twitter Harassment

[Jack Dorsey] doesn’t care. I’ve lost faith in this company. I’m just waiting for somebody to build something better. I’m ready to go. I don’t even think it would be worth talking to him at this point, because he can hear it…I know he can. He’s being willfully ignorant at this point.

On Her Cat, Sylvia Plath

She’s the worst person I’ve ever met.

On Adopting Baby Raccoons

They are my children and I love them. They’re almost as hairy as I was when I was born, so I really do feel like they could have been my biological kids. I don’t know, I’m busy, things happen. I lose entire swaths of the day.

On Anxiety

I once pooped my pants in a hotel, and I was worried other people in the hotel would find out.
