Episode 60: Twice Upon a Time


This week the Disco Trio heads to their tablets and phones.

The Atavist publishes digital essays, articles and books. One of their latest, most experimental pieces was written by Hari Kunzru. Twice Upon a Time is equal parts poem, musical experience, essay, and memoir.

The discussion begins with the piece itself, then moves to the broader question of form. Should we be swiping and listening while we read?

Up first, Julia gives a short recap of her time on the open seas. Then it’s a traditional Bookshelf Revisit: Rider talks about his time as a werewolf, Julia gets poetic, and Tod loves the 4th of July.
