Rated: Clean

Maya, Gerald, Rammy and Anais cleanse their palettes after last week’s experimental fiction with a classic story from Alice Munro. Dear listener, prepare yourself for a gush fest early on in the episode as our hosts sing the story’s praises and Rammy admits to getting a little teary eyed at the end. However, the story’s structure, point of view, and themes provide plenty of meat for our hosts to chew on.
