RS: I'm a huge fan of everything that you do. I think you're a fantastic editor and writer. You're doing great stuff at Oyster. I love your tweets. Any sort of general conversation with you is great. What's the best conversation you've ever had with someone?

KN: I don't know if I can recall my favorite conversation *ever*, but the best recent conversation I had was with Brendan O'Connor and Nicole He. The thing we all have in common is that we love lifting. It's not just bros, y'know? Anyway, I was giving them some pointers on how to do pull ups, since neither of them can do one.

Do you haver any recent Netflix recommendations?

I think Force Majeure is on Netflix now. That was one of the better films I saw last year—a dry, funny, sometimes devastating portrait of a marriage.

What can people expect from your reading?

I've read at three of these before, so I might do something a little different this time.
