Oh No! Lit Class is a semi-educational comedy literature podcast hosted by Megan and RJ, two bitter English grads who are here to tell you all the weird and sexy things you never knew about the books you had to read in school. Let's ruin some literary classics together. New episodes released every other Thursday.
90: Victor Hugo Said ACAB
Do you hear the people sing? Megan and RJ sure do as they get all kinds of Les Miserables on this special Patreon-request episode. Learn why no matter what time it is, it's always Time For Victor Hugo's Opinion, pro Les Mis speedrunner strats, the dark, horny truth behind the numbers 24601, and the Definitive Top Ranked Javert Drownings.
89: Paul Hollywood IS Mrs. De Winter IN Rebecca
So...there's an acclaimed spooky Gothic novel called Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier and there's a new original movie on Netflix also called Rebecca and, in theory, this episode is about that, and NOT Paul Hollywood, evil housekeepers that sound like Wario, or James Bond devouring a mansion. In theory. Happy Halloween everybody!
88: We're Gonna Goose Your Bumps
Listener beware, you're in for a scare, Megan and RJ are here to give you Goosebumps! Learn all about RL Stine, the man behind the bumps, plus: Hairy Adoption Alternatives, "What's the Deal with Kids and Ventriloquism?", and the oral history of Goosebumps Live On Stage. Yup.
87: The Phantom of The Hockey Rink
"Christine, I am The Angel of Music, and you must never touch my mask...seriously, have you ever taken a puck to the face unprotected? Brutal." It's Halloween, and you know what that means: Spooky ghosts, haunted opera houses, horny Frenchmen, and Emilio Estevez menacingly whispering things about ducks and/or hockey. It's Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera! I think!
86: Is the Evil Fairy Who Cursed Your Dick a Girlboss?
In this episode, Megan and RJ ask: What killed John Keats, arguably the softest of the Softboi Romantic poets? Lord Byron and Percy Shelley blame mean reviews, but we're *pretty* sure it was the tuberculosis. Probably. See also: Poems About Things, discussions on whether or not peen-cursing equals female empowerment, the inherent sexiness of Grecian Urns, and Extremely Specific Burial Requests With RJ.
85: Clear Eyes, One Nut, Can't Lose
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??? By which we mean a book about football. Specifically, Friday Night Lights, journalist H.G. Bissinger's journey to Odessa, Texas, a town so obsessed with its high school football team it was willing to sacrifice grades, hopes, dreams, mental wellbeing, and yes, a testicle here or there. RJ scores a touchdown in the blogosphere, while Megan tries out some new catchphrases.

A great podcast!
Just discovered this podcast today, and after listening to one episode I am already hooked. Delightful hosts with a great premise who cover classic and no so classic novels, poems, short stories, etc in a really funny way. I hope they cover my favorite Arthurian legend fanfic The Once and Future King by TH White someday.
Very reliable financial advice!!!
Found from MBMBaM
Found them from their ad on MBMBaM when listening to one of the older episodes. They’ve been one reason to smile during quarantine
