Othersode #63: Hot Patel Winter / Station Eleven (HBO)

Remember when we did an episode on “Station Eleven” by Emily St. John Mandel back in 2018? We barely do either! But now we’re talking about the HBO limited series “Station Eleven.” Full circle! We discuss the differences in the book and the show, the role of art and pop culture, favorite episodes, and what it was like to watch a pandemic show during an actual pandemic. Next we catch up with what’s on the blog (lots of fun stuff!). Read along with us for our February 21st Bookpisode on “Goliath” by Tochi Onyebuchi. For our next Othersode on March 7th, it’s book-to-film adaptation time with the Hulu movie “No Exit.” Send listener feedback on this episode or any other to thesquad@booksquadgoals.com and don’t forget to leave us a rating and review on Apple podcasts!
