Kevin Nguyen

By Jeff Umbro & Kyle Craner / The Podglomerate

Kevin Nguyen is the editorial director for Google Play Books. Before this, he was a book reviewer at Grantland, worked at Amazon and Oyster Books, and has published online at The Paris Review, The New Republic, The Atlantic, The Millions, and elsewhere. Kevin is also the snarkiest Twitter user I know. In this episode, he speaks to us about his career trajectory from two awful startups to Amazon, Oyster, and currently Google. Now that he's a few years removed from his tenure at Amazon, he opens up to us a bit about his experience while there. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
