Three Percent #170: Don’t Give a Million Dollars to a Fascist

This podcast comes in HOT. Lots of talk about how Peter Handke doesn’t deserve any award, much less the Nobel Prize. (And if you don’t know why, just listen for his quote at the end denying Serb atrocities at Srebrenica by saying “You can stick your corpses up your arse.”) Then things transition to an existential conversation about the future of the Best Translated Book Award (really, Chad is still doing OK, no need to worry), and ends with Tom’s fight with Oren from the American Booksellers Association and Chad offering to do “anything” to get indie booksellers to recommend Sara Mesa’s Four by Four for the Indie Next List.

There’s also a movie recommendation, a conversation about rereading, and a really lame plug for this article. Enjoy! This podcast is 100% FIRE.

This week’s episode opens with “Total Trash” by Sonic Youth and closes with their song, “Youth Against Fascism.”
