The TradeWaiters 83: “Stargazing” by Jen Wang

For today’s episode Jeff, Jam, and JD are joined by cartoonist Miriam Libicki and her daughter Mered for a discussion about Stargazing by Jen Wang. This slice-of-life story about two girls dealing with life issues big and small gives us lots to talk about, and according to Mered, should be required reading for 99% of the population. So go find a copy and then listen in.
