Non-local primordial non-Gaussianity is a smoking gun of interactions in single-field inflationary models, and can be written as a combination of the equilateral and orthogonal templates. I present the first constraints on these templates from the redshift-space galaxy power spectra and bispectra of the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) data. These are the first such measurements independent of the cosmic microwave background fluctuations. I discuss how the constraints on these templates can be translated to bounds on the coefficients of the Lagrangian of single-clock inflation. Then, I present the constraints on primordial non-Gaussianity of the local type, typical of multi-field models of inflation, from the same data.
