    Taking down anti-fat bias with Aubrey Gordon

    Taking down anti-fat bias with Aubrey Gordon

    Our weekly panel chat is back! NPR’s Code Switch hosts B.A. Parker and Lori Lizarraga join us to discuss the week’s pop culture news. We cover the Academy Award nominations, cultural expectations for tipping and a man who survived off of ketchup while lost at sea.

    Then, Maintenance Phase co-host Aubrey Gordon tells us about her new book ‘You Just Need to Lose Weight: And 19 Other Myths About Fat People.’ In it, she tackles untruths like "being fat is a choice" and “fat people don’t experience discrimination.” We talk about how to combat anti-fat bias and Aubrey’s hope for greater legal protections.

    Undercover: The art of adaptation

    Undercover: The art of adaptation

    In the final installment of our “Undercover” series, we head to the movies (or just your living room couch)!
    Some of today’s biggest films and TV shows are adaptations of books. So what does it take to make a written story just as evocative on-screen? Can the movie *ever* be as good as the book? We take you inside the creative process for series like ‘Interview with the Vampire,’ ‘Little Fires Everywhere,’ and more.

    Undercover: How audiobooks bring a story to life

    Undercover: How audiobooks bring a story to life

    For our special series “Undercover,” we are taking a deep dive into some of the different ways a book comes to life!
    This week, we’re peeking behind the curtain to learn more about one of Greta’s favorite ways to experience a story: the audiobook! We follow the lifecycle of a “book on tape” from author to producer to narrator to the sounds coming out of your earbuds.

    Nerdette Book Club: Kevin Wilson on ‘Now Is Not the Time to Panic’

    Nerdette Book Club: Kevin Wilson on ‘Now Is Not the Time to Panic’

    Nerdette Book Club is back for another year of reading!
    Our January pick is ‘Now Is Not the Time to Panic’ by Kevin Wilson. It’s about Frankie, a misfit teen girl in rural Tennessee, and the one summer she will never forget. She meets Zeke, a fellow weirdo, and the two create an enigmatic poster together that upends their small town and, eventually, the world.
    Kevin joined us for a conversation about how the book came to be, his interest in strange, stunted characters, and why he sees this as his most personal novel yet.
    We would love to include you in our book club conversation! First, read the book. Then, record a voice memo on your smart phone with your thoughts. Send it to NerdettePodcast [at] gmail [dot] com by Monday, January 23. We’ll try to include you in the episode. Happy reading!

    Undercover: The thorny business of book blurbs

    Undercover: The thorny business of book blurbs

    Nerdette is embarking on "Undercover," a three-part series into the different ways a book comes to life.
    First up, we take a look at a seemingly small, but very important element of a book: blurbs. Praise from well-known writers can help a new author find their footing, but the system is all about who knows who. We talk to authors, editors and readers about whether it’s time for a revamp.
