Show Notes

Apologies for Cameron’s audio quality. This episode was recorded on a back-up microphone in a Reno bathroom.

This week, Matt and Cameron dive into an author you may not have heard of before in the short story On the Way: A Sketch by Nadezhda Khvoshchinskaya. They talk childhood, imagining the fantastical, and why don’t we remember one of the highest paid authors of the late 19th century in Russia. Grab your thoughts on the past and tune in!

Major Themes: Whose Interiority Was it Anyway?, nostalgia, childhood
