Book Clubs for Adults Who Just Want to Read Fun Shit

I think I always thought of book clubs as "old ladies read smut" or "annoying people read High Brow Literature and talk about it rudely." It never occurred to me that I could have a book club where we just... read what we wanted? And talk about if we enjoyed it?  So I…

Episode Six: Chaos and Training Montages

In this episode, I'm joined by my friend Harumi ( @helloharumi  aka @angrybabylawyer ) while we scream about the good and the bad of Gideon the Ninth, what makes a good and a bad fantasy story, and why lawyers can't just read books for fun.  Pairs nicely with whiskey in a coffe…

Who Watches Over Us?

When I was younger, my Mom used to tell me that if I didn't find something to believe in, some kind of faith, she worried I would become lost. Which was ironic, because she was perhaps as agnostic as anyone. She didn't attend church, didn't believe in God, and certainly didn&…
