Some of y'all may know that I co-host an occasional podcast about sports with my awesome Australian friend Mookie. I've enjoyed that format so much that I've wanted to translate that fun to book talk, particularly so we could delve into some more complex issues that don't suit the written blog post format.
This is very much the case for our inaugural episode, in which Laura and I discuss young adult fiction, its issue with diversity (or lack thereof) and look at two books focused on the immigrant experience: one that got it really, really right and one that missed that mark.
You can listen by steaming the audio in this post, by control- or right-clicking the "download" link or by subscribing in iTunes (our album artwork isn't displaying yet, but you can see it on the right). I'll be adding the podcast to other directories as soon as we have enough episodes banked to be eligible.
Thanks for listening!
