Episode 19 Rust(ed) Libertie
Welcome to Episode 19 of This Podcast is Overdue with April and Christi. Each episode we talk about books we're reading, things we're loving, and library advice we're giving! What does freedom really look like? What happens when your life, your future, is not really yours to control … is your liberty rusted? (Sorry, we took some liberties with the title … pun intended!). Many of our topics in this episode explore this theme in some way or another whether it’s the freedom to be who you are or who you’d like to be or freedom from patriarchy, harassment, and oppression. Listen in to hear our thoughts on the readability of different texts and what we’re watching this summer! New! We have transcripts! It isn’t perfect so bear with us, but we’re super happy to add transcripts to our show notes. We hope you’ll consider supporting us on Patreon or Kofi so we continue to offer this service!

Listen in to hear about what makes Christi cry, what gives April chill vibes, and how else we’re exploring the “media landscape”! (thanks Chuck!) New! We have a transcript! It isn’t perfect so bear with us, but we’re super happy to add transcripts to our show notes. We hope you’ll consider supporting us on Patreon or Kofi so we continue to offer this service!
