In this month’s podcast, the KYD team get together remotely once again to discuss human–animal relationships and Erin Hortle’s stunning Tasman-soaked debut novel The Octopus & I (Allen & Unwin), and what we thought about the human–human relationships in the new small screen adaptation of Sally Rooney’s worldwide sensation Normal People (Stan).
