The Culture Quest

Mar 22, 2020

Our adventurers have stumbled upon a book they wished would never end, but also that it would tell a different story.

Episode Breakdown:

  • We start the episode by talking about the opening segments that we do in the show, we name the segment and listen to a few audio drops that might go along with it (00:02:09).
  • In this episode’s Tavern Talk segment, we discuss Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit (IMDB) (00:07:57). We quickly break down the story of the movie, talk about the actors and characters and compare it to Hunt for the Wilderpeople (IMDB).
  • Our main discussion is about Last Chance to See, by Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine (Goodreads). We start by discussing what the book is about and how it came to be (00:20:52).
  • We then share our general feelings towards the book (00:23:18).
  • We talk about how Adams’ experience in the field changes the personality of the book (00:30:29).
  • We then discuss Adams’ quirky writing style (00:31:57) and how it sometimes maybe goes a bit too far.
  • We talk about our favourite bits from the book (00:36:25).
