    Halloween Month continues, fam! This episode, Ingrid Bohnenkamp (Ex Libris) joins us to discuss Susan Smith's Samantha Slade #1: Samantha Slade, Monster Sitter. Come along on our journey to explain to Josh that mummies are indeed real. Ponder with us--is King Kong the hero?

    27. Clueless

    Hey, fam! It’s totally Jessica’s fault this is posting late--she’s been real sad and lazy lately and just kept procrastinating on ... everything! So enjoy this ep as Josh and Jessica discuss the novelization of one of their fave all time movies, Clueless! (And Blake wrote a new song, if you’re into that sort of thing.)

    Next episode we’ll discuss Betty Ren Wright’s
    The Summer of Mrs. MacGregor. You can probably find a PDF of it for free somewhere, if you want to read along.
