    The Resident Evil Movie (Free Bonus Episode)

    Since it's been a while, and we're currently slogging through a very long book for the next episode, we decided to give ALL of our listeners a chance to hear the new episode we just released for our patreon donors. It's not about a book. Most of our bonuses episodes aren't, really. But it is a lot of fun!

    The Champ of TV Wrestling (Which Way Books #22)

    The Champ of TV Wrestling (Which Way Books #22)

    It's time to get what an old boss of Clsn's used to call "choiceful" in these all-too-choice-free times, so we break format a little bit (and break out laughing a lot) with a "Which Way" book, in which we try and mostly fail to become the titular Champ of TV Wrestling.

    River of Teeth

    We live in a world that has hippos, and those hippos have to be ridden by people with weapons. Who's gonna do it? You? These people have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for victims of hippos, and you curse the hippo riders. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what we know. That hippos eat people, but that probably saves lives.

    Atlanta Nights

    Atlanta Nights

    For SO many reasons, it's time to get out of town, and so we're hitting the road to check out some of those hot Atlanta Nights we've been hearing so much about! Atlanta Nights is a truly bizarre artifact, so strange that it forces us to break our own rules and stretch our own format, as we take a deep dive into the churned-up waters of "bad on purpose" and find ... well, okay.

    Dachshund Through the Snow (The Dogmothers Book 3)

    Dachshund Through the Snow (The Dogmothers Book 3)

    It's a tradition like no other, as our friend Stef Gray joins us to discuss our second consecutive book entitled...Dachshund Through the Snow! This time through, we get substantially increased Dachshund quantities, more flashbacks than is probably reasonable, and an amiable lope of a story of a few women passing through some extremely family-friendly challenges.

    Dachshund Through the Snow

    It's a murder mystery, a searing portrait of small-down power, corruption, and lies, a thrilling tale of corporate malfeasance, and a legal procedural, but really what it is is a story about a guy who doesn't want to do anything except watch ESPN with his buddies, who similarly want only to watch ESPN. "Dudes rock", in book form!

Definitely a comfort podcast

This is an amazing podcast to listen to. The two hosts are so funny commenting on these bad books, while at the same time I don’t have to brace for any microaggressions or uncomfortable jokes. I love listening to old episodes when I am feeling down and recommend this show to anyone around me to listens to podcasts. 10/10

Terrible

This podcast is horrible. I’m all for bad book/show podcasts where they actually understand what’s going on and say okay this is bad because of the plot or what have you, but they review things and have no idea what they’re talking about and make them seem bad because of it. They just like hearing themselves complain

this is the only podcast

great hosts, great guests, great picks, great jokes, great tunes. every episode a banger. fan page is the only good place on facebook. if other podcasts existed this one would be beyond compare to any of them; however, there are no other podcasts.
