Discussion Notes: Ross Perot and China

This week’s story: Ross Perot and China by Ben Lerner

Next week’s story: The Escape by John L’Heureux

Rated: Clean

Andy, Gerald, and Anais discuss “Ross Perot and China” by Ben Lerner. Gerald and Andy did not care for the story which Anais loved. In particular she loved the theme that dwelled on the contrast between predictable aesthetics versus the unknowable interiors of minds and of homes. She valiantly defends the story, and even convinces Andy to consider a different theme. But can she convince him to raise his rating?

We apologize for Anais’s subpar audio today. She was traveling during the recording of this episode and did not have her usual set up.
