TMR 17.2: “Pure Hatred” [Eltit + Hahn]

Technical difficulties abound as Chad struggles to find reliable Wifi in Latvia. (While being recruited by the Russian mafia?)  Katie and Brian take the lead this episode, discussing the next few chapters of Never Did the Fire, gendered adjectives and information, Marxist groups and analysis, and much more. Also: Stay tuned at the end for a special interview with Sam McDowell of Charco Press!

This week’s music is “Age of Anxietyt I” from the new Arcade Fire album.
