In the January 2021 episode of Engineered Unicorns our local Bookdragon SandyJ looks back on her reading year and forward to the new one.
Fairytales often shape our perception of the world and therefore are important as some of the foundations of our society. Therefore it is necessary to take a look at the stories that we tell ourselves and what they teach us and the young generations.
This months fantasy book recommendation „The School for Good & Evil“ by Soman Chainani does just that. In a hilarious story it turns our perception of what good and evil look and act like on it’s head. The narration by Polly Lee gives the story extra oomph.
Looking for a new way to organize your life but non of the „off-the-rack“-systems work for your special case? Then „the Bullet Journal Method“ by Ryder Carroll might be the adaptable system you search for. SandyJ uses the Bullet Journal since 2018 and loves it.
Add in the interesting book releases of this month plus an ALL NEW THEME SONG by our favorite bass guitar player Erwin Schmidt (Thank you, Erwin) and you get an inkling what we will stream on Sunday, January 10, at 7 p.m. on Campusradio Karlsruhe. Dropping on the podcast platforms next week.
