Today's episode is a bit of a catch-up / breather: I'm answering a few listener questions and emails and, along the way, returning to some of the podcast's ongoing topics of interest.
Topics like... statue activism, book clubs (I ask: why do some last and some don't?), recording the podcast, teaching challenging texts, and the often energizing circumstance of teaching students who think English is a whole bunch of bullshit. I hope you enjoy!
The podcast music is by Dyalla Swain. The podcast graphics are by @muskrathands.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As you'll hear in this episode, I'd love to hear from you if you have been in a longstanding book club and have thoughts about why it has lasted so long, and I'd also love to hear from other folks who have taught Marian Engel's Bear.
Follow the podcast on Twitter and Instagram @TeachinBooksPod. I post extra content, like audiograms and behind-the-scenes stuff, on both accounts, more frequently on Insta, so follow me there for more teachin' books fun!
Please subscribe, rate, and review, and spread the word about the podcast if you like it. :)
