Light from Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki

Episode 88

Release Date: May 3, 2023

Your hosts discuss Light From Uncommon Stars, a definitely-not-magical-realism novel by Ryka Aoki. They talk about misleading expectations, immigrant experiences told through food, and how the book really is as sweet as people say it is but you have to get to the ending for that payoff. Special features include Donuts, Lesbian Flirting, and Sex Positivity.

Content warning, this episode includes conversation about transphobia but no specific descriptions.

Thanks to the following musicians for the use of their songs:

- Amarià for the use of “Sérénade à Notre Dame de Paris”

- Josh Woodward for the use of “Electric Sunrise”
