Show Notes for Ep. 40 "Welcome to Season 2"

The hosts of Mohanraj and Rosenbaum Are Humans return for season 2! Mary Anne and Ben ease back into podcast mode by reflecting on the first season of the show, as well as the kinds of guests they should invite and topics they should explore in the coming episodes. Of course, it wouldn’t be an MRAH without the tangents on American politics, the ecological question, and dystopian writing. Welcome back humans!
