Renee welcomes Anna Bogutskaya to the podcast to chat about her book Unlikeable Female Characters and the nine character archetypes that make a woman unlikeable. You don’t have to be a film nut to enjoy this book and conversation and you’ll be floored by how common these tropes are.
Ashley interviews Anissa Gray about her novel, Life and Other Love Songs. The conversation includes crafting a Black man with unchecked trauma, forgiveness within family, deciding the story’s timeline, and giving Deborah, a character, power in her story.
Life and Other Love Songs Content Warnings: rape, abortion, alcoholism, homophobia, death, gun violence
