3-9 February 2018


Thank GAWD Andi is here to tell Jove that yes, the Winter Olympics have started and omg Olympic geopolitics! #somuchintrigue Also, Andi wishes Fiona Zedde had posted her essay about Italian toilets, but no such luck. Also, Andi thinks Hayley Kiyoko is the shizzle and you should totally buy her music and go see her in the movie Becks. And on tour, if you can. Because fangirling. And queerfolk.


3 Feb.: Women and Wordster Ann Etter does a reader’s perspective on books that have athletes and athleticism as a focus, in honor of the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.
