Holy crap, this is bad. The Podcasters and the guests are priests in The Church of Millenial Wokeness. I just wanted to learn about a sci-fi classic I'd never heard of before. Instead I was subjected to 20 minutes of prostheltizing sermons on the end of the world due to climate change [the Jehovah Witnesses would be proud] and the need to accept the tenets of transgenderism [as confusing as the trinity doctrine in Christianity]. No different than churches making homeless people listen to a sermon before eating. *Undubscribed
Love love love this podcast I wish you guys had taught me literature at school and beyond. I can’t believe your breadth of knowledge and the incredible amount that you manage to read. And Olga Tokarczuk Ksiegi Jakubowe! I have her enormous tome (in Polish) waiting on my shelf… may take me a decade to get around to it so thank you for digging it out.
what a superb podcast - the best kind of Bookgroup.
having read Beloved for the first time a month ago, and loving it so much and knowing I'll read it again and again, I was excited to listen to this episode. and I loved your discussions! I think this is my favourite blacklisted yet.
