One of the calmest podcasts to date featuring two controversial topics: the new Open Letter cover design, and the side-effects of suddenly doubling (or quadrupling) the number of translations published every year. 

In terms of recommendations, this week Chad is all about the completely wild Bred from the Eyes of a Wolf by Kim Kyung Ju, translated from the Korean by Jake Levine.

Tom's in love with This Searing Light, the Sun and Everything Else: Joy Division: The Oral History by Jon Savage.

This week's music is "Bike Dream" by Rostam.
