Othersode #81: Hey, Amazon! / The Power

The future of the world is going to be okay because the squad has… THE POWER! In this episode, we talk about the Amazon Prime adaptation of The Power by Naomi Alderman, which we read for the podcast back in 2019. How does the TV series stack up against the book? You’ll have to listen to see if the show has the spark.

Read along to get ready for our next book episode, where we’ll discuss Chain Gang All-Stars by Kana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah. For our next Othersode Tirzah Price will join us to talk about her new book, Manslaughter Park, and the film Fire Island.
