About This Show
We’re Adam Price and Jesse Paddock, and this is our podcast Fan’s Notes. Basically, it’s us yakking about two of our favorite things–books and basketball. Each episode will feature us discussing one of our favorite books, and then segue into some aspect of basketball (usually NBA-related but not exclusively.) We’re hopeful that the two will resonate in some thematic or aesthetic ways, but if not the conversation should still be lively.

Fan's Notes Episode 24: Donald Barthelme / Draft Lottery
5 days ago
In this second installment of the Short Corner, our biweekly series in which we read a short story instead of a novel, we look at Donald Barthelme's "Concerning the Bodyguard," as well as Barthelme's style more generally. At the 38 minute mark, we switch over to the Draft Lottery, which took place this week, and try and figure out who teams will select based on what they need most. Join us next week for our discussion of Claudia Rankine's Citizen and in two weeks when we read Lorrie Moore's "You're Ugly, Too."
