130: Emily Nemens (THE CACTUS LEAGUE) & Anelise Chen’s SO MANY OLYMPIC EXERTIONS

Emily Nemens, author of The Cactus League, editor of The Paris Review, stops by The Damn Library, and everyone gets to talk about all things baseball, including Emily’s story of a harrowingly long game. Christopher makes a bonkers cocktail and gives a slight history lesson with his recipe. Plus, Emily goes into some of the best things involved with writing about/watching baseball, as well as cutting out 25,000 words in a single edit. Then (CW: suicide) we get into Anelise Chen’s So Many Olympic Exertions, and we all talk about things that felt good to quit.
