    Episode 6: The Extracurricular Paradigm Shift

    Episode 6: The Extracurricular Paradigm Shift

    In a long-overdue and especially off-the-wall episode, Lily and Lorraine allegedly discuss the extracurricular activities associated with grad school, but mostly descend into madness while explicating the marketing strategy for their upcoming book "The Vorticists, Were They Gay?" Also featured: the results of Lily's modernism term paper, a shout-out to Karen Kelsey of The Professor is In, and stone-cold callouts about FU English classes. Leave a review with 5 stars and your guess of what we were talking about in the cut-out section two episodes ago, then share it on the social media platform of your choice.
