Three Percent #75: The Camel Jumping Podcast
As a bonus for dedicated Three Percent listeners (both of you!), this podcast features the two Fulbright students studying in the translation program this past year: Ayoub Al-Ahmadi from Yemen and Jan Pytalski from Poland. We talk about their individual projects—both of which are likely to be published by Open Letter in the next few years—cultural differences, the classes they took with me (which were their favorite classes—and I didn’t even pay them to say that!), and camel jumping. Yes, camel jumping.
(Best part of that video—aside from the actual jumping of camels—is the opening question: “How do you jump over a camel?” “I run fast and jump high.” Like, fucking duh.)
This week’s music is Don’t Wanna by Howler, a bit more dirty rock than most of our podcast songs. (I like it for the reference to Minneapolis.)
