New Year, Same Us (QR 051)

January 17, 2023

Kris and Tara are back from break with an extra long episode. We’ve got listener questions this week and it’s all about reintroductions. Who are we? What are we like? What are we doing on this podcast? Questions are answered!

Kris’s new book, Catch, is also out! She discusses reviews and her thoughts on first and third person perspective bias. And, Kris and Tara check in on how their dogs are doing. Kris found something that wasn’t a walnut. Tara felt deep inter-species empathy for her puppy. Also, Tara queerly recommends taking time off work.

Welcome to the new year, folks. We’re going places.

Official Recommendations

From Kris: The Inspection (2022)

This week, Kris recommends The Inspection, a film written and directed by Elegance Bratton. It’s based on his own real-life experiences as a young man facing homophobia at home and in a Marines boot camp as he struggles to make something of his life.

From Tara: Rational Creatures

Tara’s big recommendation this week is Rational Creatures, a web series that retells Jane Austen’s Persuasion in the modern day. Tara loves herself some queering of Austen (remember her love of last year, Fire Island?) and this series is one she couldn’t put down.
