You Should Read: The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell (with Bekki Fahrer!)
Aug 10, 2021 Season 2 Episode 30
Kelly Hager, Julia Hall, Rachael Hall

Hello, Should-Heads! We're back with a longer than usual episode (and a fourth host!) and we have a lot to talk about. It's a book club episode and there are spoilers, but we talk about faith and doubt, purpose, colonialism, the rush to judgment, the perils of re-reading a favorite book and much, much more.
