Every month we'll be reading and discussing books that we believe push us to be inquisitive and give us a better understanding of society today.

Hosted by multimedia journalist Diyora Shadijanova (@thediyora on Twitter and Instagram), the podcast features one book every month and will be released in two-part episodes. Part one is a group discussion of the book and part two is an interview with the author of the chosen book.
