Listen to them struggle with subtexts, historical contexts, symbolism and the minor fact that none of them have actually read the book.

Featuring Special Guest Experts take-no-prisoners comedian Chris P Bitz, Chin's brother Cheek Coffee and David Simon (the guy who wrote The Wire).
The very definition of self-indulgent
Just because you & your mates make each other laugh does not mean you are actually funny or that you should have a podcast. More than an hour of nonsense & very little discussion of literature or the authors.
Doesn’t Focus on Books
If you are into literature and wanting this to be pulling apart and sharing opinions about texts, then this is a pass for you.
The book is vaguely intertwined with the chatter.
Not for me!
Stumbled upon this by accident. Useless for literature, but surprisingly funny.
