In this episode, we reference a tweet by Mara Wilson and an essay by philosopher John Holbo. (Incidentally, while putting together these show notes, I found out that Holbo had tweeted out some updates regarding that essay a couple of years ago.)
This episode includes a clip from the Simpsons episode 'Treehouse of Horror V', the overture from the movie 'Cannibal: The Musical', and a brief portion of the Velvet Underground song 'Venus in Furs'.
Thanks to Shaenon K. Garrity for designing the Love YA Like Crazy icon, to the Sentimental Favorites for the use of their song 'Hey There', and to Charlie McCarron for the 'Love YA Like Crazy' tag.

If you love to read, or you love to think about the books of your youth, you'll love "Love YA Like Crazy."
Jake and Carrie provide thoughtful and funny commentary on the books they read and the YA lit in general. It's a charming show and fun to listen to even if you haven't read the books.
Jake and Carrie keep me interested in a genre of literature I'd otherwise not have much contact with. I really appreciate their conversations and commentary on the world of young adult books!
