Want To Be A Good Writer? Read Bad Books!

Another week, another exciting episode of A Bit of Culture, featuring our talented host, Kam Raslan, and his sidekicks, tech guru Matt Armitage and movie buff, Zan Azlee. Together, they discuss the recent attempt by Elon Musk to take complete control of Twitter, and how dangerous that is, followed by Alan Moore’s advice to aspiring writers: “If you want to be a writer, read bad books”. Lastly, the trio then talks about representation of Asians in Western cinema, and how things are beginning to feel pretty homogenous, despite the inclusivity and diversity.
