Three Percent #137: The Fire & the Fury Over No Amazon in Rochester
After a few weeks away from podcast, Chad and Tom reunite to talk about sales of Fire and Fury and its lasting impact, Milo’s edits, the TA First Translation Prize Shortlist, Rochester’s failure to land the new Amazon HQ, Wormwood, and more.
For those keeping track as you listen, here’s the baffling video presentation Rochester & Buffalo sent to Amazon and here’s a link to A.N. Devers’s article on Brigid Hughes and The Paris Review.
Sorry, while we’re goofing on Rochester’s delusional ambitions, I have to share this. Please try and make sense of those statements.
This week’s music is Crooked Numbers by Unlikely Friends. Now that football is over with Minnesota’s crushing defeat to the Eagles, it’s almost time to pay attention to America’s game!
