So late to this party!

So I just happened upon this podcast. Scrolling through past episodes to pick one to try, had to go with the Xanth episode because 1) I had the HUGEST crush on Will Freidle back in the day, and 2) I REALLY dislike Piers Anthony. I know I’m several years too late to contribute to the discussion, but it’s one of my purposes in life to tell people this one thing about Piers Anthony, so....
You think the Xanth rape trial is disturbing? Try the novel Firefly (which Piers Anthony smartly wrote under another name). It features a 5-yr-old girl re-enacting her own rape in court, by humping an attorney. To orgasm. After which we are apparently expected to feel bad that her rapist was killed in prison.
Mix that with Anthony’s letters with Jenny Elf, add a dash of And Eternity and its endless repetition of the phrase “young flesh,” and what you get is a steaming batch of Piers Anthony Shouldn’t Be Allowed Within 100 Yards Of Schools Stew.

TL;DR Love the ‘cast, Piers Anthony is a pedo creep.

Love it

I really love this podcast! Julia is my absolute fave! Sometimes the guys talk over her which is annoying but they’ve been more mindful of that recently. And I enjoy Todd he’s like that annoying friend who secretly is your favorite. But love the podcast really fun overall.

Hit or miss

This is hit or miss for me. Sometimes I thoroughly enjoy episodes and sometimes I don’t. I think Tod tries a little to hard and can get obnoxious but I really like
Rider and Julia for the most part and there can be some really good discussions. I really enjoyed the Columbine episodes very good discussions.
