Podcast #12: We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo

We_Need_New_NamesWe’re getting there!

This is the sixth podcast this year, and the fifth discussion dedicated specifically to chatting about one of the finalists.  That means we’ve got just one podcast left to eek out after this, and if you’ve been keeping track at home, you know that we’re doing it just like mama always said.  That’s right, when you’ve got the cat by its balls, you save it for last.

In this episode Aaron sings a little song he wrote about the book, Jackie reveals that she actually finished listening to it before the recording (!), Karli tries to get her geometry homework done, and Michelle shockingly admits for the first time ever that she thinks that The Luminaries should win the prize and that Life After Life should have at least made the longlist.
