Better Than The Movie

...because the book normally is!

Better Than The Movie is a podcast for people who love reading diversely, books, book news, and issues related to literacy and popular culture. Our goal is to review and discuss book themes with passion and an open mind. We want to encourage our readers to look beyond the best sellers lists and  discover new voices and stories. 

We are The Readers, the people who the publishing world should be catering to, but oftentimes  don't . We are smart. We are funny. We are sometimes a little snarky. And we always, ALWAYS, think that the book is better than the movie

 

EPISODE FORTY-SEVEN: Her Teeth as Confetti

You thought we wasn't when we was? Shooooot. Just because we are a literary podcast, don't think we aren't discussing Lemonade like everyone else, ha! We discuss the work on a granular level as well as delve into the idea that Black art is often seen as autobiographical, instead of works of imagination.
