S1 E3 – Code Shifting or Feathered Beaver – Chapters 7 – 9
The podcast is theoretically released on Fridays, 0:01, Japanese Standard Time, except when it’s not. We try. I promise. Note: we swear a bunch. This week, we discuss Chapters 7 to 9 of Wuthering Heights. We cover Catherine’s feathered beaver, her efforts at code shifting, and we dig a little into late 18th century fashion. For this week’s reader report, Emi has prepared a rap, and she enlists her roommate to beatbox for her because the rest of us are terrible (and the delay on the Zoom call makes it pretty much impossible). Daniel sings the hook. As always, we do the Cathartic Pop Quiz, and a new Teacher’s Pet and Class Dunce are crowned. Stay tuned at the end for a couple of outtakes and a special bonus track! Our wayward readers are: Andrew Woolner, Artistic Director of the Yokohama Theatre Group.Daniel Wishes, Puppeteer and PodcasterEmi Do, World-changer and marathon runnerJuri Ito, Assistant Artistic Director of the Yokohama Theatre Group.
