Episode 20 - Homegoing (Part 2)

History never really says goodbye.

5 years ago

Look, you guys: this episode never saw the light of day. Some cosmic power out there saw fit to eat part of our recording! But we got everything straightened out, which is great...because we're super excited to discuss Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi!

We start off with a sit-rep of our recent FriendTrip, then drop some crazy book news on you before digging into the book itself. Be forewarned: there are spoilers ahead! But if you're cool with it, we drop lots of knowledge on you. From different narrative points of view to inherited trauma, things get literary. But don't worry, there are plenty of laughs, too!

Be sure to stick around to the very end where we announce our next read, which is going to be a little bit saucy and a LOT steamy.
