Episode 015 --- Taylor Lorenz

Taylor Lorenz is a technology & internet culture journalist and author whose new book 'Extremely Online' comes out October 3, 2023 on Simon & Schuster. The book covers the birth of the 'influencer' and is the most thorough history-telling of social media and its stars from the early 00s to the present day. We talk about the wild amount of research that went into writing this book, her creative process and work-life balance during the course of working on it, the tortured process of book cover design, and more.
