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.
The next book we’ll be reading for the pod is this masterpiece we found in the Cub Foods book section. It’s about patriots fighting Islamic terrorists who have gotten hold of nuclear weapons or something and is probably not at all racist. We can’t wait to support the (fictional) troops!
