About the Podcast

JK, It’s Magic formed when two ladies met at the library and discovered they had a bajillion things in common — particularly a profound love of reading. These two ladies then decided to take their love of all things bookish to the next level, and share that love with all of you by creating a space to talk about YA fantasy in a critical way. We hope that this podcast becomes a platform to discover new worlds, facilitate deeper engagement with our favorite books, and encourage others to take part in the journey.

Accessibility is important to us — whether that’s for our episodes, website, or social media. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with suggestions for improvement. We can always do better!

And I read the words of Ta-Nehisi Coates today:

"You cannot forget how much they took from us and how they transfigured our very bodies into sugar, tobacco, cotton, and gold.”

“The Star-Spangled Banner” is one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon, and you would be wise to cut it from your #FourthofJuly playlist. #FvckTheFourth

The 4th of July is not my independence day. So instead I read the words of Frederick Douglass:
