episode 11: Michelle Tea and the end of the world

Michelle Tea joined us to talk about her latest book, Black Wave. We also touched on the tech industry, pant suits, trump pumpkins, overly official quotation marks, the honesty of third person p.o.v., protests, election rage, and writing the end of the world. Michelle F may have gushed on Black Wave a little. But come on, that book deserves it.
