Ep 484 - The House of the Spirits, by Isabel Allende

The House of the Spirits is a multi-generational, lightly-magical-realism-y Chilean novel that eventually ends up being about Piochet's military coup, but it's also about the importance of studying events over a long span of time to come to a deeper understanding of why things happen the way they do. Something we could all stand to do more of, honestly.

Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
