New Fuse 8 n’ Kate Episode: Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister
We recorded this week’s podcast during Shark Week. What better way to celebrate than to read the shiniest fishy in the sea. This week we experimented with putting me in the left ear and Kate in the right. Is this a good way of handling the problem of our similar voices or deeply annoying to listen to? I’m going to need some feedback on this one. Before that, however, enjoy our capering as I go off on my desperate need for a hologram book, massive fish shunning, and my inability to fight Kate effectively on this one. As ever, if you have feedback on this episode just drop us a note at FuseKate8@gmail.com.
Here are some things mentioned in the podcast:
- The original book jacket:
- Swimmy by Leo Lionni:
- Big Red Lollipop by Rukhsana Khan, ill. Sophie Blackall
- Ayn Rand’s Rainbow Fish by Mallory Ortberg at The Toast.
- Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia show has a trailer here:
- A great little recap of GLOW can be found on Pop Culture Happy Hour here.
- And finally, the movie The Warriors, which you really should all go and sea because it’s awesome.
And last but not least, listen to our latest episode here.
