Guuuyyyyys, what are we reading next? Another dating/relationship book! So pleased we will be taking a look at mustachioed TV guy Steve Harvey’s masterpiece, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. It’s going to be full of gendered stereotypes, lady-blaming, and maybe one or two pieces of okay advice wrapped in garbage. We’ll also have some special guests helping to break it all down on our next episode. Look forward to it!
Hold onto your bell bottoms, because Professor Isaac is here to tell you all about one of his areas of expertise: Charles Manson! Lauren and Isaac read Jeffrey Melnick’s Creepy Crawling: Charles Manson and the Many Lives of America’s Most Infamous Family (2018) and engage all the most important cultural questions: Who’s the worst Beach Boy? How hot were the Manson girls? Does Charles Manson fuck? (yes, obvi)
Friends, our next book has in fact been chosen, and true to form, it’s murder-related. We’ll be reading Jeffrey Melnick’s Creepy Crawling: Charles Manson and the Many Lives of America’s Most Infamous Family. Isaac’s been reading it and chuckling to himself over on the other couch, so it’s sure to be filled with delightful and strange nuggets of knowledge. Read along! Or go re-read Helter Skelter. Don’t watch that David Duchovny Manson show that we watched two episodes of and was very bad. Okay, good talk, team.
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.
This episode also features a promo from another indie podcast, Good Nightmare, which you should 100% check out if you’re into creepy stuff.
Oh hello friends, as Lauren works to get her shit together and get our Without Mercy episode out, you can check out all our past episodes now on the iHeartRadio app! If you’re into that sort of thing! DO IT.
