Three Percent #148: The Hottest Trend

Sticking more or less to their biweekly schedule, Chad and Tom reconvene to talk about a couple recent articles, the challenges of being a literary nonprofit, interesting books they’re reading, humblebrags about the Words Without Borders and PEN galas, and more. Surprising lack of sports talk this week, although there is a good vibe of resignation and slight depression that is a hallmark of a solid Three Percent episode.

Articles and media referenced in this episode:
