Othersode #69: We Got a Dollar Once / Persuasion with Tirzah Price

Wink, wink. 😉 Why is the Book Squad winking at you? Because we watched the new “Persuasion” adaptation on Netflix, that’s why! Join us and special guest Tirzah Price for our discussion about the film, including the fourth wall-breaking, the anachronisms and other bold choices, the plot simplification, and the characterization of Anne. Next we chat with the always delightful Tirzah about her latest novel, “Sense and Second-Degree Murder,” and potential future novels! Read along with us for our next Bookpisode on “Olga Dies Dreaming” by Xochitl Gonzalez on August 8th, featuring special guest Janet Dale! Then we’ll lean into our new status as your go-to Sandra Bullock podcast for our next Othersode on “Bullet Train” on August 22nd. Send us some listener feedback to read on the pod, and don’t forget to leave us a review!
