Two New Releases That Resonated with Mariquita & Nox

In this double feature, we’re sharing a moving author interview as well as a review of an important non-fiction book.

Family Dynamics, Women’s Rage, and Korean-American Womanhood with Gina Chung (01:54)

First up, Mariquita interviews author Gina Chung about her new collection of short stories, Green Frog. Along the way they discuss how women’s rage is acceptable only within certain parameters and never for women of color, how stereotypes of Asian women stifle full expression, and just what we owe our parents (and what they owe us).

Review: Against Technoableism by Ashley Shew (26:16)

Then listen in as Nox (and her sweet kitty Hazel!) shares her thoughts on the book Against Technoableism by Ashley Shew. This review will shed light on her opinions as a disabled person of not just this book but also the world, and how we can all do better for disabled people.
