Three Percent #105: Alexievich, Amazon, and Rights
This week’s podcast features a discussion of Nobel Prize-winner Svetlana Alexievich (who Chad helped publish at Dalkey Archive), Amazon’s recent announcement about investing $10 million into translations, and how rights work. There’s a minor rant about Chase Utley (“worst human being on earth”) and a little bit of baseball talk.
In honor of the Mets and Cubs, this week’s music is Been So Long by Win Win.
