This is my first attempt at making a podcast for this lovely blog. I always have trouble finding podcasts that are specific to African American books, short stories, and related topics. I used Audacity to splice this reading together and my voice may be laughable at times. Forgive me. I’m trying. In an attempt to add a little flavor to the podcast, I added “She Don’t Have to Know” by John Legend since it makes reference to knowing in the lyrics.

“The Knowing” is a short story originally published in Gumbo: An Anthology of African American Writing edited by Marita Golden and E. Lynn Harris. I’ve referenced the story here before, so I obviously enjoyed it.

Happy reading, y’all!
