Aside from Long Night sidekick James Keast and house band the Bicycles, Vish’s guests were Rachel Giese, Sabrina Ramnanan, Daniel Schulman, and Lee Reed. Rachel Giese is a National Magazine Award-nominated journalist who was a senior editor at The Walrus and a deputy editor at The Grid.

Sabrina Ramnanan is an Ontario-based author who won the 2012 Marina Nemat award via the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Education Creative Writing Program and her work has appeared in journals known for presenting postcolonial and diasporic perspectives. Her debut novel is out this month via Knopf, it’s called Nothing Like Love, and here we discuss being celebrated for our difference and the action in her novel. Daniel Schulman is the New York Times bestselling author of Sons of Wichita: How the Koch Brothers Became America’s Most Powerful and Private Dynasty, a biography of the Koch family, which is coming out in paperback this May. He’s also a well-respected investigative journalist and a senior editor in the Washington, DC bureau of the left-leaning and highly reputable American magazine Mother Jones. Here, Daniel and I discuss his recent entanglement with Bill O’Reilly, the Koch Brothers, House of Cards, and the upcoming U.S. Presidential election. Lee Reed is a gifted and politically outspoken hip-hop artist from Hamilton who once fronted the amazing group, Warsawpack. He has just released his brand new album, The Butcher, The Banker, The Bitumen Tanker and here, he performs a new song called “This Microphone.”
