Episode 57: Discussing The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin, plus fantasy book recommendations and reflections on buddy reading

Today we’re discussing The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin. Listeners, we’ll warn you before talking about any major spoilers—but we do highly recommend reading this page-turning sci-fi/fantasy novel! If this is your first time listening to one of our buddy read episodes, welcome to the nerdiest part of our podcast. Buddy reading is something we started doing to connect with each other after Curtis’ last deployment, and we’ve gotten a lot out of it. We read the same book (not at the same time, unless it’s an audiobook on a road trip), and then we talk about it here on the podcast. Do you have a buddy read recommendation for us?
