Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
"We're here today to talk about our June twenty twenty. Book Club, pick, convenience store, woman by Sayaka Murata translated by Jeannie Taffy, Takamori. Yes, so there's a divisive opinion on this book and I'm like really excited to dive into it. A lot of people were questioning our decision to pick this book as a lighter More I guess not dark read. Okay, but the thing is like our book club. Pick before that was a warrior woman and I. Think were your was darker than convenience store. Women didn't think it was that dark to be having me neither. Get into a little, are we? Are we the Weirdos here for? Okay, so without further ado, let's get into our. Our discussion. We want you start off with the Book Jack. Description Keiko is normal at school and university. People find her odd and her family worries. She will never fit in to make them happy. Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple daily tasks. But in Keiko Circle just won't do for an unmarried woman to spend her time stacking shelves and Green Tea as the pressure to find a new job or worse, a husband increases. Keiko is forced to take desperate action so the story itself is a slice of life. story about a convenience store worker toll from first person perspective from the main character Keiko and. I guess we can start with just the style of the store because it's very straightforward. Right and that's some so I don't know if you have this information, but is this the style of Sayaka Murata, or is this because of the condition of Keiko are someone who is like atypical? I have not read any of meritas other works because they happened been translated, but from what I've gleaned from interviews like she does have a very deadpan style to her writing. It is very straightforward like you said and a lot of her previous novels because convenience store women, while it's the first novel to be translated in the states. It's also her tenth novel. and. Yeah like that was really surprising to me. But her other novels are they kind of the same same themes like it's about nonconformity in Japanese Society AH take on gender roles and sexuality, and just like Japanese, societal issues on celibacy and a sexuality and. There are two books that have actually like I'm really hoping that they get translated 'cause the premise is. It's so bonkers There's one book called dwindling world I don't know the Japanese title is, but it set in dystopia where all procreation is made artificially and sex between a heterosexual married couple is is considered to be pretty disgusting like they. Oh, yeah, it's. It's not really a taboo, but it's more of like. Is this like Why are you doing that? A better way to like make children like. Why would you go through sex so? That's like a really interesting premise to me and then the other one. which definitely sounds like my jam? It's called sausage in Soussan, and it roughly translate to translates to birth murder, and this is also a dystopia novels and they banned. It's a dystopia novel where? Where a person who gives birth to ten children they they get to lawfully murder another person down. Yeah, right? About a royal. The Battle Royale I want this book to be translated immediately. Into a movie! Speaking speaking of like adapting it to a movie I. Think Convenience Store. Woman would work really well as a Japanese DEALLM. Or even just like a limited series like one of the Japanese. Soap operas or TV, shows are kind of like the BBC were they're pretty like they're short and sweet. Yeah, yeah, well well. The thing is like a convenience store. Women is such a short novel. It's only like. Because of the size of the hardcover book it's IT'S A lot smaller and very very cute. But in the smart in the smaller version, it's like around. Two hundred pages were like two hundred and fifty pages a in like a normal Let letter size paperback. It's like a hundred and fifty pages, so it's more of a novella than an actual novel. But this book was really really popular. It sold six hundred and fifty thousand copies in Japan and it won the Tugela prize.
Miz and Mrs: Season 2 Episode 2 Review

We were talking about how we didn't get to see the move to la well here we are in La Moving term this one is I will say less eventful then the last one but it was not without its challenges so we see them packing up the House House. Ms Has to essentially work while. They're moving so he being the good husband that he is gets Murray's professional packers and movers because she's very pregnant by this point so he's a good husband they load up the truck and they also flew to la all of them on a jet yet not a bus a jet so needless to say lessons learned lessons were learned on this one but they had a fun house I I they did but before they had to find a house they basically talk about how like. They swore they were never going to do this again. NOPE and here they are a year later doing it again and and we also learned that they're getting a new addition aside from the new baby in that misses mom and her very creepy collection are moving in with miseries when they go back to La. We'll talk about the cler. I mean that is kind of creamy. Yes it is a little creepy. I'M NOT GONNA lie but but we go shopping for rentals in La. They've decided to rent because they don't WanNa make the same mistake. They did before where they they buy in a bad neighbourhood so they wanna be able to shop figure out where they actually WanNa live this time because they have the other thing of schools now I have to think of schools which will get interesting to say the least So we also learned. Ms Cannot do math. Yeah it wasn't very good at math. He's not good at the math. So we go to Rental House One and has a lot of potential has a really nice yard yard. It's okay on the inside. Maurice really likes it. Mrs Just SORTA MIC. This is house hunters Mrs Edition by the Way Russia House to is all true. Oh sweet it's super modern. Very nice everything. They could want more except for the fact that it's way overpriced and to have pets vets In the house. It's it's extra money in it. Takes the rental price up to ten thousand dollars a month to read this house. Two thousand extra two thousand extra to rent this house and they were built like no. That was a big old. NOPE and then they go to the third house. And there's this lovely park down the street street and businesses absolutely in love with it because it's got a playground it's a place where Marocco go run around. Have a good time. They go in the House and it's really nice and it's actually very very much like their house in Austin Very similar in look and feel and so they fall in love with it and they decide that rental marm is is going to be number three so then we go to ms at work in Kansas City where he meets with talent relations at WHO's Adele relations. John Cone what. He's a senior in your manager. In talent relations like wait. What I had to rewind his go back and watch it again because I was like no no that Tim say yeah that Ted Senior relations of senior manager of talent relations? Who knew who do? We just thought he was was the donor guy and the referee. Apparently he's he's got a day job guys who knew who knew that now that would explain why his kid got the wintertime. There there you go very go. The mystery the Final Vale has fallen guys. So they're looking at MRS schedule because he's basically asking for time off to help. Maurice moved to be a good husband. And he's like okay. Well you know junk like well. You should've Smith snickers commercial so we can't cancel that MS like no. No I want to do do that. And then Congo's well you got this thing at Pebble Beach. We could get rid of that. And Mrs like what Yeah. You're playing at Pebble Beach. No no we're not getting rid of that L.. Do it. She can move on her own. legit which is what he was like. He didn't say it like going through has like yeah. It's Pell B.J. Once what's a lifetime because not everyone can go play beach with him getting the opportunity to play Pebble beach on live television for the US Open. He's like I'll bet in company guy he'll he'll make that that sacrifice but he's not going to tell his wife the to make that sacrifice. Oh He's filming US knickers commercial so we see the the last of the house getting packed up. They take one more selfie in front of the House and the Mrs off to film his his snickers commercial we see him sneak his golf clubs in the garage than he acts like. He's leaving ways from Arista. Go back inside. He gets out of his car runs into the garage. Grabs the golf clubs throws them in the car and then they leave the fact that he didn't get caught on that because they have cameras everywhere. Where is hysterical So then we we land in la where it's Maurice Farben Marjo. Oh Monroe the baby and the menagerie of pets. Yeah so we go to the house. They're walking walking around the house where I was like. Oh it's so nice and misses mom breaks out one of her dolls and shows it to Monroe and Monroe is like very scared of the dull shoes. Carring poor little thing. She was terrified of the doll. It's like all Imerese is like I like our. We'll talk about it later. He's like no no we will. You're not getting that thing near my kid. NOPE NOPE so we've been Marie taking monroe out. I stroll I think going down to the park. And they bump literally into another parent. WHO's walking her son up the hill And they start talking about the area and schools and everything comes comes up. There's a preschool waiting list. Because we're they are is a very exclusive area some of the best schools in the country. And you have to fight to get your kid into into preschool. Never mind the regular schools. Reese didn't realize this and the waiting lists in. Some cases are for years long. That is not an exaggeration that is legit Gitte which I knew about shit like that. So the fact that she didn't and I did is terrifying. So Reese freaks out. She calls Ms and he's like. Don't don't don't rush into anything. Don't do anything. They have a bad connection they get disconnected. And she's like all right. Well I'm going to start calling around schools. I'm doing my research and see what I have have to do to get monroe into a preschool and these preschools. They're not you not your average preschool. They teach your children diction and and thought and Mandarin and all kinds of interesting things that I didn't realize preschools compete. But here we go like like diction I'll say this. They try to teach kids in preschool Spanish. Now I'm like I think teaching them another language at an early age is definitely beneficial. Because it's easier when you're younger I think versus when you're harder when you're older at least I know they're trying to teach my nephew like how to count in Spanish. So that's great. That's Awesome I. I wish I wish they did that for us. Because I'm no one. I had to take languages in school. I was offloaded. New Eh. Wasn't the best. Yeah it was not always do numbers and some works with beyond that was like I don't I don't remember honestly but I just know if they had taught taught us like French or Spanish in school. That would awesome like preschool. I've been awesome. But anyway we cut to Maurice Calling all the schools and they let her know most of the schools are like you're too late. The witless is too long. One lady hangs up on her and she's like okay all right so I'm gonNA or do what I have to do to get monroe into a school so she engages a Mandarin instructor to come to the House to teach monroe how to speak speak Mandarin Chinese. The child is one But she still learn to word through the and they're very excited about it over verbs Meritas like she speaks English. She speaks French and now she's going to speak Mandarin and she's one she's a shoo in. So there's that and then there's MS who has arrived at Pebble Beach. She's checking with every his his group which are all the Fox sports hosts talking all about it and then and then ms ms he was so in the home. Free right like he was so in. Clear Maurice's Nice distracted with schools. She's not going to be paying attention. All he had to do was keep his mouth shut. which apparently the fans cannot do to save their souls soup and what does he do? He calls his father and he tells his father that he's going to be playing at Pebble beach on Fox sports sports on live television and he tells his dad all the details. But there's one detail he said don't tell Murray's so we cut back to Los James Louis Moreau Joe has her frog legs. EMORY's is like no. You're not putting those nasty things in my fridge. And then she gets a phone call. It's George and he asked Marie what channel MS is GonNa be on because he's at Pebble beach and he can't find it on TV. EMORY says like no. He's filming stickers commercial. George like no he's going to be on live. TV playing at Pebble Beach. And she's like what and so she starts flipping through the channels right to find him and of course she finds him and there is a pebble beach playing golf. And Mario's like I don't see any snickers I love March. Oh I missed Marjo so much. The submarine being the good wife that she is ready to unload on him. You know he's on the seventh hole. She calls him. He hangs up on her and she sees him him hang up on her Marcio. Marcio has the best line ever. which is he's dead and he doesn't even know it yet? Yeah you're like. He sowed it 'cause when he hung up on her. Okay you're
Vegetable Breeding with Nate Kleinman
"A lot of what I learned about gardening decades ago I learned from seed catalogs always gravitating ones featuring the varieties the better plants promising. Lots of both personality and productivity. So when I got introduced to the nonprofit cooperative called Experimental Farm Network recently I felt right at home a corps belief at the F. N. that that act culture can and should be used to help build a better world not help destroy it. co-founders Nate Kleinman in New Jersey. There's e- and dusty hens in Minnesota chrome most of ESPN's seeds in each year. They're adding more growers to their roster including inspiring plant breeders who often often work in relative obscurity nature today to shine a light on these players and some old and new varieties. I think you'll be as excited about as I am. Welcome nate. I'm so glad to meet you so much. I'm really happy to be here is my motto. I like it I that should be. We should steal uh-huh so I'm so much have made your introduction and we have so many. CD friends in common. I'm surprised we haven't crust fat pass before but let's start with an explanation from you of what the experimental farm network is and how it got started. Sure and we've yeah we've only been around for a few years though not too surprising. People are definitely still learning about it. we we were founded in twenty thirteen gene destiny and I met actually through occupy Wall Street Movement In Philadelphia we were involved with occupy Philly and a group called occupy vacant. Lots lots which was working to To basically transformed vacant lots in the Philadelphia area into productive food growing spaces and dusty scene. I were Farming in small lots and and I had been urban farmers and backyard farmers for for some time but we both decided we wanted to to expand and Get some land and try and grow on a bigger scale and I had also been collecting rare seeds for a few years. At this. This point I had a growing collection and not enough places to grow them. I we started talking about. Should we start a seed company. What what do we want to What do we want to do with all of these seeds and It was actually at A. I went to a conference and I heard a talk from a guy named Eric. Tones Meyer from Massachusetts who's an author and And he wrote some great books. One called Paradise lost Another called The carbon urban farming solution and he gave a talk on perennial industrial crops and how perennial staple crops could be used to fight climate. Change and I had sort of known the story of perennial wheat and the the attempts to develop for any elite through the years. But there were he mentioned mentioned crops that I knew about but had no idea the potential that they might have as as potential Sources of energy of Industrial we'll crops An industrial uses fiber crops and of course food crops And there were always stories about how through through The last century people have made a lot of strides towards things like perennial wheat and then For for whatever reason they had to abandon it or you know they worked for university eventually. They retired and nobody was there to to pick up the slack so At the same time I had been working working with Occupy Sandy which was a grassroots hurricane relief organization that grew out of the occupy movement following Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and New York and so we had This was a really successful effort. How mobilized tens of thousands of volunteers and was in neighborhoods that the the government was not in and the Red Cross and Salvation Army that we were able to fill a lot of folding and impressed a lot of people in including the people involved with it for being amateurs doing something that is normally reserved for professionals and doing a great job at it so I started thinking well if we can apply the same kind of ethos to some of the problems in in plant breeding some of these things that have been nagging at people for for generations like developing viable perennial brain props If we could create a a collaborative horizontal model where people are working together in a decentralized centralized fashion that maybe we could drive innovation and help to to create some of these some of these crops that really need to exist So that that sort of the of the whole thing and so besides the seed Catalog online that we're going to get to in a second the or these projects that that you're in you're we're doing like for instance. seeking improved genetics of the Native Beach Plum. Which I think is what is it prunes? Meritas that what that is or the native May POPs the native passion flowers that in Karnataka. PASSIFLORA incarnate. Is that one didn't make that up. Sometimes they make that names and and so so there's all kinds of of projects besides the seeds That are in the where people can shop and and get things are these projects going on to Like you just talked about perennial grains and so forth but for some native important Plants Plant says. Well yes yes. We're working with a lot of a lot of native plants that have potential as as domesticated crop plants. People just I need to put the work into it and we figure if if before all working together we can do better job I mean. Plant breeding is. It's I often say play. Printing is looking for a needle in a haystack. STAC you're trying to find that exact correct collection of genes and traits. And so if you if you have more people looking through the haystack back. You're going to find the needle fast now. So I have listening lots of starving from winter gardeners who want to buy seeds and shop proceeds in fine crazy. He's going to grow and whatever so. Let's go to the store front and I think you you just put up your list recently early January For Twenty Twenty and I think you have more than in two hundred offerings hundred. I think we're new to you There's a few common threads running through The listings and one one of them as I said in the introduction perennial edibles and I thought. Let's talk about some of those and I see that on instagram. You say ah many of these will be friends. As a major part of our nonprofit mission is encouraging farmers and gardeners to plant more carbon sequestering perennial crops. So that's sort of the the the mission behind the perennial edible thing. Yes you plant. It does its job for a long time Yup and and because you have a perennial. You're not tilling. The soil and active jealous is what releases so much carbon into the atmosphere. It's not just tractors and the equipment equipment chemicals people use but but just a very active tilling. Yeah so for instance there. Are you have seeds book. Believe or or something for ramps and Rhubarb. So tell me about. Some of the Rhubarb story was fascinating actually. Yeah I love the one of my favorite scenes yourselves the Tracy Rhubarb of which is Name we gave to a variety of rhubarb that You know it it may have had another name originally but for all we know it It it was a you know a seedling. Potentially that was planted by Friends of my family who were an elderly couple who since passed away and after they died hide their daughter-in-law took me to the property. She wanted to find the rhubarb and digging up because it was all they always made delicious. Baked goods with at and She she was pacing around the back yard looking for it underneath the in the grass and They'd had a they'd had somebody mowing the grass every couple of weeks while the house on the market gets and finally she found this This pencil thin stock with a quarter-sized leaf at the end of it. And so they're they're far very unimpressive presence but had survived under the MOWER. Blades for a couple years. And when we put the shovel to the ground we've found a huge dude route underneath the ground and I was able to dig it up and and run away. Divided into three chunks and each chunk became a plant that my friends in my friend's backyard in Pennsylvania and then We started splitting it up even more and I sent to my sister in Michigan and a friend in Baltimore and I I planted it in New Jersey and then pretty soon. We realized that this was a really extraordinary rhubarb. Had really fix fix stems so It's very easy to use in the kitchen and has enormous leaves which shade out all the weeds in a within a three foot area around the plant. So it's it's very very easy to grow and then one of the most Exciting things about it is that compared to all the other rhubarb that we grow It's the least attractive to the Japanese. Beetles also have a Japanese problem. Where you live? You may know that they They seem to love Rhubarb and they can really Decimate a plant in In the summer when they're when they're at their peak so this one survives through through the summer really well it's it's early and and it produces another flush in the fall. Aw and it's it's It's just delicious too. It's got A it's got A. It's not deep bread. It's got red at the base of the of the stock But enough to make any jam I am or tie that you make have nice pink colored and And it's just delicious

"And became the assistant astronomer at the academy of sciences in Berlin in seventeen hundred Finkel Mon in her husband made up survey Sion's created calendars Maria herself published several pamphlets on their findings. They were doing the work side by side. The the telescope would have been the property of the academy. The astronomers lived in the academy. Their house was part of the academic building. There was something called the guild system, which was the economic production system at this time in Europe and the wife of the guild master was such an important part of the family economy that many guilds required that the master be married. So I think they. They fit nicely into that pattern. And they were both. Excellent. Astronomers, but it was Maria who made the couple's first real scientific discovery sheathing or found proof and the notebooks of Meritas husband, Gottfried, quiche the husband rights while I was asleep. My wife discovered a comment, and I thought well, isn't that interesting? Women are always doing most of the work. But no, that's not true. It the astronomy. At the time was a family business and often the family would divide up the work. The husband would observe one night the wife would observe another night. And they would then be able to have continuous observations. Discovering a comment is a big deal. Yeah. It is. But I assume Maria Bingaman didn't get credit in her lifetime because the couple's findings would have been published under her husband's name, you would be assuming correctly..

"They just came in, they padlocked the house and they put up a barrier in the back and all other things were still inside. So these banks were ruthless. Leo Meritas own finances were rapidly dwindling, hit liquidated, all his assets. He cleared out his entire Bank account. It only took six months to just get down to zero and. I felt such shame that couldn't provide, and I couldn't find a job that would pay me anywhere near enough to even just make our mortgage. He also says he tried to repeatedly refinance his mortgage or to get his interest rate adjusted, but he was repeatedly denied. However, by two thousand ten, he'd finally found a new job, but it paid just eight dollars an hour when I would go to work in the morning, I'd work like nine ten hours a day, and I would drive home wondering if we had a house where your parents worried my parents basically just stayed. They stayed inside the house and to watch it, make sure that the Bank didn't come. My mother would prey like all day that God would deliver us from this downturn and from the sinking ship. And here's the thing that doesn't get talked about a lot. When we look back at the great recession, it devastated families financially, but. Also emotionally Morita says it was like an unbearable Paul that had spread throughout the house, but in two thousand ten Leo Marietta says, the family grabbed hold of a lifeline President. Obama had signed the Affordable Care Act into law. So his mother got health insurance, which helped a lot with their huge medical bills.

Murrieta says his mother's medical expenses continued to climb her medications cost more than eight hundred dollars a month. So again, they fell behind on their mortgage in two thousand thirteen. Foreclosure proceedings began on Leo Meritas home and they lost the house. His family is in rentals. Now as our forty, five percent of north Las Vegas residents who live in single family.

My stance on them as they are the taste of the loud public fight you had with the worst person you ever dated, oh, they are the taste of that. I hate them, but for some reason that that won't get into people's heads. I think it's trolling at this point. People want to know what I think of various products in this zone. And you know, I realize I'm just playing a little a straight white male privilege here. What I would. That's the worst trolling. I get people wanna get spotlight live. I'll take off to, honestly, as far as internet trolling goes, it's pretty mild, I thankful I don't have to deal with the other things, but it is something that happens. And so as this kind of public services to kind of get it all out for the year. I like to have some guests taste tests, new products in this zone, just so people don't ask me what I think of them later. We have this definitive document with what I think, and also what my guess think. So just before we start taste testing, we have three items here that I got from my local target. What? What is your guys experience with this kind of product? Is this something you guys kind of drank in the early days of drinking? Yeah, I, I really don't know. It's not at all. I don't like sugary drinks. My favorite drink is of Kamar teeny sure. I will say I was thinking about high school. Can I tell quick like first time, drinking story? I would like it if you did. Okay. So this reminded me of I didn't make the national Honor Society here that and I was very, very devastated. And I had a bunch of friends coming over to watch empire records, which is removing when you're Dow. Actually, I watched that after my first series freak really real. Yeah. I did. It's it is such a great movie because it's it's just like about love and music, and you know raising, we watched that and Ghostbusters. Yeah, because Russia recently does it hold up empire records. I was actually just thinking about it today, and it is kinda creepy that Mark kisses the ballerinas foot. But yeah, that is weird. I think I watched in the last five years and it did hold up. Yeah, enough. Very nineties though, for like I know so many people maybe not maybe unlike the past two years when suddenly like people, I, I know bunch of communists now that That like. like that like that. Like, like, you know, two years ago, my friends were like, man, I can't wait to sell out. It would be nice to have yet. It would be nice to be able to afford things. And now now there's much more like radical stuff going on, but but it is very nineties of the like, you know, hey, gang. We're. The record church like deals with suicide right away. And it has like the, I will say the Rex manning moment between live Tyler and him where she wants to seduce him in the first thing he does is unzips his pants and then shakes up some ranch. Like I didn't understand that throughout high school and beyond, and I still don't really understand the ranch. I think he says something to reference it, but I do like that she'd over remember the ranch. I don't even remember. Guar is my one, and then a guy gloves. It change to the floor and war. For feeling slammed my art to you. Yeah, that was the first peanuts used. Yeah. Was the guar penis? And I was like, oh, I will have none of this. Sure. Yeah. You've been on, you've been dating monsters for Arctic. Scores backstory, does it something like that? Yeah. And then there's my favorite line is like the beginning of the movie where Lucas is like I do not regret the things I've done, but those I did not do. It's a great movie. And so I had a bunch of friends over to watch it and I decided that this, you know, I didn't make the national Honor Society, so I'm going to start drinking. 'cause sorry. Yeah, it was. It was very hard, ruined my career as a high schooler. And so my parents had a full bar because we're rushing a lot of different type of and I didn't know the difference of any of it..
