"I think this is a lot of the work of feminism. Women are constantly leading the charge on bringing stories to the forefront that aren't even their own." - Traci Thomas
Traci Thomas is the host of The Stacks podcast, a podcast about books and the people who read them. Each week, Traci interviews a diverse group of readers from author to actors, from activists to TV writers and more about their reading tastes. Then Traci and her guest will dissect one book in detail the following for The Stacks Book Club. The show connects the literary with the social and political in a fun and no pressure atmosphere. Every other Monday Traci talks with authors about their writing process on mini episodes called The Short Stacks.
