FRR Books Podcast #1: The Festival of Insignificance by Milan Kundera


This is the first episode of FRR’s new books podcast.  Our goal is to discuss books(mostly fiction), especially where they intersect with our lives, nihilism, and anarchism.  I(rydra) will be the most consistent host with a rotation of friends and others I find interesting broadcasting when we desire to.  In this episode we discuss Milan Kundera’s final novel, “The Festival of Insignificance.”  I began reading Kundera as a teenager and my fondness for him has only grown as I have slowly felt the effects of his writing, ideas, and brilliance sink into me over the years. read more
