Piya Chattopadhyay guest hosts. All schedules are subject to last minute changes, so please check back for updates. Here's what we have on tap today:
 

  • Piya speaks to John Lanchester, author of the new book How to Speak Money, about the new cultural divide, as he sees it, between those who "speak money" and those who don't -- and how financial jargon is at fault.
     
  • Canadian author David Bezmozgis on his acclaimed new novel The Betrayers and the challenges of writing a contemporary, politically engaged novel when current events start to overtake your story.
     
  • Marilyn Hagerty shot to fame in 2012 with a review of her local Olive Garden that went viral. Now, the 88-year-old Grand Forks, North Dakota columnist returns to Q to talk about her latest review of her local Applebee's and why her unpretentious restaurant reviews are connecting with people.
