58 - Notes of a Crocodile

58 - Notes of a Crocodile

This week we give ourselves a bit of a history lesson as we read Qiu Miaojin's Notes of a Crocodile, a satire of Taiwanese society in the late 80s and 90s.

Correction for this episode: Becca refers to Qiu Miaojin as Miaojin instead of as Qiu, her surname. Apologies for that mistake.
