Hello, listeners! Episode 3 is our first fantasy-adjacent mini-sode (that didn’t actually turn out so “mini”) in which we discuss Ship It by Britta Lundin. This conversation got pretty meta since we dove headlong into discussions of fandom, capitalism’s co-opting of diverse voices, and shipping (#obvi). We laughed, we cried, and we definitely adored this book.


As always, we’d love to be in discussion with you, magical folx. Post or tweet about the show using #criticallyreading. Let us know what you think of the episode, anything we missed, or anything else you want us to know by dropping a line in the comments or reaching out to us on twitter or Instagram (@thelibrarycoven), or via email (thelibraycoven@gmail.com). You can also check out the show notes on our website, thelibrarycoven.com.

We really appreciate ratings and reviews on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, or any other platforms. Help us share the magic by spreading the word about the podcast!

This is really smart and the two of you talk so well. I keep making notes about ideas that resonated. The comment on the slave depictions in game of thrones. The whole world of fandom, which is new to me. Forty little notes, i took. But really it’s the unabashed love of books that moves me. I wanted to write something smarter here in the comment box, but the level of your paired intelligence and joy overwhelmed me. Thanks for doing this.
