This time, Lauren and Isaac have tackled a paperback purchase from the grocery store, Without Mercy. It's about terrorism and how the laws of the United States make it difficult to stop terrorism. Isaac has maybe studied this his whole academic career and has a lot to say. Also, it was bad. You'll hear a promo from Good Nightmare podcast (http://goodnightmare.libsyn.com/). It's a delightful, creepy, Australian podcast with bite-sized episodes you should 100% check out.
Lauren and Isaac read Rhonda Byrne's The Secret AKA The Handbook of Pathological Magical Narcissism. We learned about how to stop thinking "fat thoughts," how sacrifice is bullshit, and that we should all be skeptical of germ theory.
Lauren and Isaac talk about James Fallon's The Psychopath Inside, their shortest book and longest episode so far. Reckless speculation ensues, Lauren gets hopped up on energy drinks and vodka, and Isaac's voice cannot be properly captured by recording devices SORRY.
Married couple Lauren and Isaac tackle E. L. James's bizarrely bestselling debut novel, Fifty Shades of Grey. It's full of angst, controlling behaviors, youthful idiocy, and so, so much unappetizing sex. Spoiler alert: we were not fans.
Married couple Lauren & Isaac have formed a book club--with each other. Episode 1 tackles the first volume of Adolph Hitler's Mein Kampf. This is for comedy purposes, not white supremacist ones, you guys.
