Lauren and Isaac can read and are married to each other. Sometimes they read the same book at the same time on purpose. This is that.
Episode 28- TekWar
Lauren and Isaac read the 1989 sci-fi (classic?) TekWar by the one and only William Shatner. Was there a war? Not actively! Were there robot boobs? Hardly! Was there a plot? Vaguely! Just sit back, disarm your lazgun, raise a plasglass, and listen to us be bored with ourselves but mostly this book.
Episode 27- Mindhunter
Lauren and Isaac are back after a bit of a hiatus to bring more talking at your earholes! We read John Douglas's "Mindhunter," which is not really like the TV show, but is definitely written by an old white guy.
Episode 26- The Amityville Horror
Lauren and Isaac read the cult classic(?) "true story" of The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson. Check here first for info on porcupines for your ears, demons pigs, and not scary at all books!
Episode 25- Stay Sexy & Don't Get Murdered
This time, Lauren and Isaac read Stay Sexy and Don't Get Murdered: The Definitive How-To Guide by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. They talk "dark impulses," get real about their own greatest junior high shames, and get bummed out about life in this late capitalist hellscape.
Episode 24- Sacred Hoops
Lauren and Isaac read Phil Jackson's '90s spiritual/sport memoir classic "Sacred Hoops" AKA "Eat, Pray, Dunk." We talk religious indoctrination, cultural appropriation, and how lacking this book was on John Stockton content.
Episode 23- Midnight in America
In this edition of Electric Book Machine, Lauren and Isaac read Jonathan W. White's cultural history "Midnight in America: Darkness, Sleep, and Dreams During the Civil War." We talk about weird dreams, superstitions, and how psychic Abraham Lincoln probably wasn't. War is hell, but sleep deprivation might be worse!
