Hello everyone! We're are for reals back now, and we have a great episode today! In using the short story "Enoch Soames", by Max Beerbohm, we consider the hellworld that is academia, how we can and must do better, even bringing up, quite fortuitously, Black Lives Matter!
So join us, in this great and fun discussion, as we question the story of dear old Enoch Soames, and how he personifies and suffers all that is bad in Academia.
Also a very gentle CW on Depression, it's subtle, but worth mentioning.
