Discussion Notes: Chemical Bonds
This week’s story: Chemical Bonds by Neema Avashia 
Next week’s story: Suffering in Motion by McKenna Marsden 
Rated: Clean
Gerald, Andy and Anais discuss “Chemical Bonds” by Neema Avashia, an auto-biographical story about the political divide between immigrant parents and their American-born daughter. While this podcast typically focuses on fiction, reading non-fiction was a happy accident. A bit of a departure from our normal show, “Chemical Bonds” sparked an interesting discussion that led Anais and Andy to reflect on their own immigrant families.
