Ep 217: The City Born Great
Discussion Notes: The City Born Great
This week’s story: The City Born Great by N. K. Jemisin
Next week’s story: The Theresa Job by Colson Whitehead
Gerald, Andy and Anais discuss “The City Born Great” by N. K. Jemisin, an urban fantasy about a young New Yorker called upon to midwife the birth of a great city and fend off the eldritch hospitals that would feed on the newborn. All three hosts enjoyed the story — even Andy who might have preferred if the city were Chicago.
