Minisode: Banned Books!

Check out this episode!

I am on the road, but I took a few minutes to discuss banned books. I’m joined by Ollie for a quick discussion on banned books in the US and Ireland! As per the norm, we get slightly off topic, but it was definitely interesting to hear the difference between how both countries view and the history of banned and challenged books.

Note: at one point I say books can’t be banned, which isn’t 100% true ? schools classrooms and libraries can ban books, but that’s about it. Enjoy!

This week we have new guests: Millena Silva and Carson Long of Kennesaw State University’s podcast: Book Club Soda! We discussed our first of two YA books: Once and For All by Sarah Dessen! Meghan and Carson have some serious feelings about this book, but both agree that they will give Sarah Dessen books another try. Millena and Carson take a moment to talk Taylor Swift lyrics, all three kind of roll their eyes at the main character’s first love, discuss YA tropes and major series, and explain that there is a difference between red heads and gingers.
