    IT'S SICKY TO ROCK A VIRUS. TO ROCK A VIRUS THAT'S RIGHT ON TIME IT'S SICKY!

    ALSO! We talk American Dirt- the upcoming novel about a Mexican woman's desperate race to America to save the lives of herself and her son- by acclaimed (recently) latina writer Jeanine Cummins. JK she's totally white. We talk about tact in storytelling, twitter mobs, and what the actual consequences of bad press are.

    Episode 80- New Age Nonsense 2: Vagina Candle Boogaloo

    Episode 80- New Age Nonsense 2: Vagina Candle Boogaloo

    This week in Liam's brief absence, Tarver and Blake decided to dig deep and tackle one of the most current and relevant news stories in America. Gwyneth Paltrow's "This Smells like my Vagina" scented candle.

    Their introspective, critical, and discerning dissection of this contentious story leads them down a rabbit hole in Paltrow's lifestyle company, Goop. Blake thinks its a cult, Tarver can't make sense of the insensible, and the boys fly off the rail in their investigation.
