Aditi Natasha Kini is a writer, artist, and very sweet person living in Ridgewood, Queens.
Aditi has contributed to Vice, Jezebel, Bitch, and other magazines, and she has appeared on WNYC’s The Brian Lehrer Show, BBC World Service, CBC, and many more outlets to talk about topics including incels and South Asian representation in media. You should bring her on YOUR show, too!
In addition to her cultural criticism essays and job-job as editor at Oxygen, Aditi has a few major ongoing projects:
• SALTY, a critical analysis-comedy podcast with Lori Ro;
• BEACHES, a time-bending coming-of-age immigrant fantasy screenplay;
• PROBLEMATIC, a very funny pilot about the internet rage cycle and depression, with comedian Pranav Behari; and
• I DON’T KNOW HOW TO LIVE, a creative nonfiction book critiquing the culture of lifestyle. (She is currently seeking representation.)
