The gang is back again this week (yes, THIS WEEK) to talk about fantasy fiction. No, not that THAT fantasy fiction. The fiction where we fantasize about who writes our story. What author would you choose to tell the story of your life? We discuss our choices, and Josh brags about how famous his friends are.
Up a day early to help soothe your snow day woes! This week we're discussing the recent Terry Goodkind scandal, and why literature is a collaborative art that requires teamwork.
Two weeks in a row?!? You bet your butts. We're back with a vengeance, and we're talking about how Barnes and Noble is tanking the industry. Check it out and let us know if you agree.
Okay guys, we admit it - it has been longer than a week since we posted. What we intended to be our Halloween/Thanksgiving episode has become our Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year's episode. But we're pretty sure it was worth the wait. Dramatic reading abound!
This WEEK your intrepid friends shake off the dust of a week and get into the deeper recesses of their privileged upbringings. Some kids were afraid of hunger or gun violence. Tune in to listen to the horrific nightmare scenarios that kept us up at night.
Have you ever caught yourself thinking "Damn, if only I knew what personality type Josh is"? WELL WONDER NO MORE! We heeded the suggestion of a listener and together took the Myers-Briggs test. Listen and take the test with along with us, and find out what famous authors (or podcast hosts) you share a personality type with!
We took the test at 16personalities.com.
Everything is kind of the worst, which means we are all relating to dystopian fiction HARD. We get political and discuss how the apocalypse seems to be encroaching at a much slower rate in real life than our books and films would suggest. To summarize: Thanks for nothing, Roland Emmerich.
We're a day late, which we'll go ahead and blame on the holiday weekend (Thanks, AMERICA), but we think you'll be pleased with today's episode. Thanks to an intrepid listener we're able to breathe new life into an old topic. Do we read the novel first, or watch the adaptation? We get introspective and the conversation inevitably turns to Star Trek. Enjoy!
Sometimes you love a book so much that you just feel compelled to rewrite it. Or at least...some people do. This week your intrepid hosts discuss their experience with fan fiction (or lack thereof).
We also address a well intentioned but creepy email that we received, and discuss internet manners. So keep your elbows off the table, chew with your mouth closed, and heed our advice.
