This episode of Artist Profile focuses on Tao Lin, the author of Taipei, Shoplifting from American Apparel, Richard Yates, and several others. His most recent book is work of nonfiction called Trip: Psychedelics, Alienation, and Chang. The best way to explain, or "profile", Tao Lin is to read one of his stories and let the work speak for itself. So, after a short introduction to the episode, I read Insomnia for a Better Tomorrow, a story from his short story collection Bed. The music in this episode was created by @M.Kilcullen.
