Discussion is dry as hell

but I give the utmost respect to this podcast bc there really is no other pod like this where the focus are Asian Books. When choosing the book club pick, they try to have a diverse spread of authors from different parts of Asia but to my memory, there haven’t been as many South Asian & Pacific Islander stories/authors as compared to East Asian ones. Hosts stay informed and give great news updates on new & upcoming books and other Asian/American book industry news (whereas the book club picks skew towards East Asian stories, the News Update/Non-Book Club discussions include a lot of Asian diversity). They interview many Asian authors even if they don’t discuss their books for the book club so you get exposure to a lot different Asian books. Be warned the discussion can get really dry and matter of fact (though occasionally they do have bursts enthusiasm) and overall don’t expect it to be isn’t an energetic or comedic podcast. But they do what they do very well!
