    How the Grinch Got Cancelled

    How the Grinch Got Cancelled

    It's one fish, two fish, red fish, racism fish as we dive into the dark underbelly of Dr. Seuss (no, seriously). Learn which of his whimsical rhymes Have Not Aged Well and about his takes on Japanese internment camps, which were just always bad. Also: Sneetch Taint, Ted Cruz Fails to Understand Books for Babies, and why every Dr. Seuss book is better if you scream it in the voice of the guy from There Will Be Blood. I BIGGER YOUR MILKSHAKE, LORAX!

    Rent Owes Maya Angelou an Apology (and So Do We)

    Rent Owes Maya Angelou an Apology (and So Do We)

    We're blaming Rent: The Musical for mispronouncing Maya Angelou's last name all these years because we can. And because it's just another reason to hate Rent. We're also reading her poetry. That too. Join us and discover Angelou's cable-car aspirations, learn how to dance like you've got diamonds in your pants, endure Bad Takes from old white dude poetry critics, and RJ Goes On A Questionable Tangent About Barack Obama.

    The Divine Comedy Part 2: Take a Left at Lucifer's Junk, You Can't Miss It

    The Divine Comedy Part 2: Take a Left at Lucifer's Junk, You Can't Miss It

    Happy 4th birthday to us! What did we get ourselves to celebrate? Ah, nothing much, just the epic tale of two pedantic idiots fighting over possession of The Last Brain Cell as they make their dramatic journey to Hell and back (which happens to involve a massive, hemisphere-shaking ween). ...We're talking about Dante and Virgil. Not Megan and RJ. In case that wasn't clear. We DID buy ourselves one of God's Unlimited Pasta Passes though.

    The Divine Comedy Part 1: Dante Alighieri - Short, Shredded King?

    The Divine Comedy Part 1: Dante Alighieri - Short, Shredded King?

    ON!LC is back and we're taking things in a new direction: straight to hell! Specifically, the Inferno, as we lay out the biography of Dante Alighieri and the historical context for The Divine Comedy in the first of our two-part special. RJ ruins Lord of The Rings Forever, Megan genders some genres, and we decide that 2021 is The Year We Get Cancelled By Italians. We'll see you in hell (in our self-insert fanfic).

    Dewey Decimal System? No, We Don't!

    Dewey Decimal System? No, We Don't!

    'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the 'cast, Megan and RJ had lost it at last. Answering listener questions about not naming children, which authors to date, and which authors they'd choose to punch authors they hate. Questions about cats, libraries, and more became arguing about maritime law and weird porn. And if you're feeling the year-end blues, just remember that Zora Neale Hurston pegged Langston Hughes.

    Grogu in Wonderland

    Grogu in Wonderland

    We'll just get this out of the way right here: No, we haven't watched season 2 of The Mandalorian. Yes, we know his name is Grogu. Now. After calling him Gorgu 500 times. Oops. Hey, it's all part of falling down the rabbit hole with Alice In Wonderland by Probable Pervert Lewis Carroll. Featuring: Unlocking the mystery of why all Alice in Wonderland adaptations are Like That™, learning upsetting penguin facts, and...actually that's pretty much it.

What a banger

The best days are oh no lit class days. I get to learn about all the classic books I didn’t read/understand and Megan and RJ are just a delight. And the cats. My cat appreciates them while we listen.

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.
