Best Staff Writers: And now Hanif!!!

I love the magazine, and I’m only now catching up on the podcast, so I had NO idea that Hanif
Abdurraqib had become a staff writer. I’m a huge fan of his poetry, teaching and now his New Yorker podcast episodes. I once took a poetry workshop of his (infused with music), I couldn’t believe how mesmerizing he is. He does the same with every interview here.
