Episodes

Episode 16- The Satanic Bible

6/16/2018
More
Lauren and Isaac picked up The Satanic Bible at a local thrift store and were definitely disappointed. These Satanists don't even believe in Satan! Come for the libertarian sexy orgies, stay for the teen angst-worthy poetry, we guess.

Duration:01:12:36

Episode 15- The Disaster Artist

5/24/2018
More
Lauren and Isaac read Greg Sestero's The Disaster Artist, a book about making a movie that is now also a movie. We share our favorite Tommy Wiseau anecdotes and Lauren is maybe recording from inside a small, echo-y cave. Stick around at the end when we spend several minutes discussing what it would be like to have a Satan as a landlord.

Episode 14- Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

3/29/2018
More
Lauren and Isaac really lay bare their relationship while examining John Gray, PhD's 1992 classic "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus." Is it mostly just reading aloud offensive, gender essential BS? Maybe! But you'll also learn more than you've ever wanted to know about the elusive Advice Bats.

Episode 13- The Master and Margarita

2/25/2018
More
Lauren and Isaac attempt to cover Mikhail Bulgakov's twentieth century satirical(?) Stalin-era novel about the devil, a giant talking cat, Pontius Pilate, and a bunch of other people we didn't care about, but who have names that are fun to say.

Duration:00:52:51

Episode 12- Patriot Games

1/7/2018
More
Lauren and Isaac read Tom Clancy's "action" "thriller" "classic" Patriot Games this time. It's 500 pages of '80s sexist nonsense with lots of details about how different guns work. PLUS--terrorists! (white ones, mostly) Lauren says, "Fuck you, Jack Ryan." Isaac says, "Yes, you can write a novel with your dick." PLUS PLUS--the premiere of our long-awaited theme song!

Episode 10- Eat, Pray, Love

11/20/2017
More
For their 10th episode, Lauren and Isaac are joined by Minneapolis photographer and improv person Adam Iverson to discuss Elizabeth Gilbert's bestselling spiritual travel memoir Eat, Pray, Love AKA Brown Wisdom AKA God Works Better than Therapy & Meds, I Guess. We cannot fathom why this is supposed to be inspirational, but apparently 10 million people disagree.

Episode 9- I Will Find You

11/4/2017
More
Lauren & Isaac read the masterfully ghostwritten memoirs of their hero, Detective Lt. Joe Kenda, "I Will Find You." It's full of horrific murders, deadpan quips, and general badassery. SPOILER: we love Kenda even more after reading his book.

Duration:01:11:05

Episode 6- True Believer

9/17/2017

Episode 2- Fifty Shades of Grey

7/18/2017
More
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.
