We're coming in a fewwwww days early, but it's all good. : ) This week we're discussing the sanitization of slavery children's books, Jeanette has a wee bit of a rant about some literary related things that have been annoying her and we end with talking about some of our favorite episodes of this podcast and our hopes for its future.
