Book Podcast Review: MisRead

“MisRead is a book podcast where we review books, discuss topics and provide social commentary on what’s happening today” is the description of this amazing book podcast. Its available on Soundcloud and iTunes. I came across it through The Gentle Women Book Club on Instagram.

Season 2 Ep1: Alexander Arthurs on “How to Love A Jamaican” and do Jamaicans agree. This short story collection review increased my interest in visiting Jamaica. Nigerian mothers are also overly protective. Here a child is always their child. I love living like the indigenes of a place I visit.
I also listened to Ep1: Junot Diaz Controversy, Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. This made me frown, ponder and laugh. I feel Freshwater is fiction that captures Igbo mystic realism perfectly. Ogbanjes are spiritual human beings in Nigeria. I do agree that we should be accountable for our actions as adults. Regardless of our childhood traumas.

I love the hosts, Cassie and Jolene voices. How they both articulated their opinions was soothing. My sis who sat to watch me eat (my appetite flew away while working on my LL.B project) then stopped her music to listen to the podcast. Because I kept responding to the hosts. Lool. Plus I love the different black experiences they both bring to the podcast. I’m in Nigeria, a multi-ethnic gem. It isn’t everyday I listen to Jamaican goddesses who live in Canada. Well done with MisRead!

Can you give their Book Podcast a listen and let me know what you think?
