Ep 29 - Girls on Porn and End-of-Life Stories
Lin introduces us to the Girls on Porn Podcast (https://headgum.com/girls-on-porn), which delivers matter-of-fact reviews, analysis, and interviews on porn, helping demystify the genre and identify feminist and ethical porn.
Margrit talks about two end-of-life stories: Emma Healey’s best-selling and award-winning Elizabeth Is Missing(https://www.penguinrandomhouse.ca/books/234846/elizabeth-is-missing-by-emma-healey) challenges both our prejudices and the mystery genre by showcasing a senior as narrator/detective who is gradually losing her memory. Steven Rowley’s best-selling Lily and the Octopus (https://www.stevenrowley.com/lily-and-the-octopus) centres on the relationship between a single man and his elderly dachshund, inviting us to ponder the meaning of family, love, and connection.
