    The Wonderful Wizard of Oz audiobook!

    The Wonderful Wizard of Oz audiobook!

    Guess what? We made an audiobook for you. Something about telling the tales of George Michael and Britney Spears made me think about this tale of another kid in the big city. I loved recording an audiobook of A Christmas Carol for you last December, and this was a delight as well. This book is at least 25 times stranger than I remembered, and in the best way. Fandom theories and queer theory reads are very welcome below.

Millenials who groc Gen-Xers

Hey crew,

I got a kick out of your hoax issue, and as you’re introducing yourselves as millennials, I wasn’t sure if whether the who was gonna ba age-based insider subcultural references…. but I see it goes everywhere and includes all eras (with some endearingly Gen-X era content). As an Aussie who was travelling to the US for work for each of the GW Bush elections, I’d missed the Nixon prank, but boy was I screaming at the CNN feed in the bar at Dubya’s proclamation of expected vitory air arround 4am - in Orlando Florida no less)... but I digress.

Love your work. I’ve got a substantial backlog to listen to, but I look forward to next month!

Concerns are Recent Episode on Phones

I love Sarah’s work, but the recent episode on Phones with Taylor Lorenz was very difficult to listen to. It was rife with easily debunkable misinformation, light on the research, made some wild and concerning claims, really does not reflect reality as most young people including myself who grew up with the internet experience it, and included a clearly biased co host.

Yyjjg ,

No more link to JVP?

Debunk jvp you absolute blithering morons
