The year is 2050-something and the world is…confusing? Join us in near-future America (and space!) for our discussion of “Goliath” by Tochi Onyebuchi. We discuss the “big ideas” the novel puts forth, as well as the writing style, the difficult-to-understand bits, and moments of joy(?). Then we get into some listener feedback and catch up with what’s on the blog, including new book reviews, TV show chats, and music reviews. Join us on March 7th for our Othersode on “No Exit” (the film adaptation), and read along for our March 21st Bookpisode on “The Atmospherians” by Alex McElroy. Send your listener feedback to email@example.com or DM us on the socials!
