Great job of “show, don’t tell” in the debut

Ferret’s first episode here shows off his appreciation for well-crafted storytelling by reviewing “The Only Good Indian” by Stephen Graham Jones. The short episode insures that you hit the highlights of how the story packs its punch while keeping the plot itself in the shadows. I definitely recommend giving this a listen.
