OutKasted Conversations: Kiese Laymon on Outkast and Storytelling

My inaugural guest was writer Kiese Laymon, who was, then, the associate professor of English at Vassar College and is now the Ottilie Schillig Professor of English and Creative Writing at the University of Mississippi and author of the novel Long Division and the collection of essays How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America. Laymon talks about how Outkast’s Art of Storytelling opened up spaces for him to become a storyteller.
