Episode 29: American Spy
Hey, readers! We embrace our inner conspiracy theorists with our latest read, American Spy by Lauren Wilkinson. It’s got everything you’d expect from a spy novel: Cold War politics, assassination attempts, missing sisters and a white dude named Ross. Listen in as we discuss this unexpected piece of African history fanfic.
We also talk about Family Matters, Jaleel White’s supposedly shady past and that scene from In the Heat of the Night where Sidney Poitier slapped a racist white dude. (It’s Mollie’s mom’s favorite scene for good reason.)
