Episode 48: Aimee Ogden – Starstruck

This time around, to close out our fourth (4th!) season, it’s my pleasure to welcome Aimee Ogden ( to the show! Aimee reads from her delightful trunked YA novel, Starstruck, which leads us into a lovely conversation about lesbian radishes, the exhausting nature of submitting work, and short fiction magazines we love.
