Stay Sexy & Don’t Wait Up


Guyyyzzzz, Lauren is experiencing resurgent concussion symptoms and has to avoid extra screen time, so we are moving slower than we’d like. HOWEVER, the next episode has been recorded and is in post-production. We read My Favorite Murder‘s own Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark’s Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered: The Definitive How-To Guide. This episode is on its way and we are looking into our next hate-read. STAY TUNED.


Isn’t it sports questions in that book?

Guess what, Electric Book Machine fans? We’ve chosen our next hate-read and the winner is Phil Jackson’s Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior. We plan to be inspired by sports and meditation and… sports? We expect Michael Jordan anecdotes, borderline(?) racist insights, hardcore cultural appropriation, and a new way of looking at basketball or whatever. Is this a man’s Eat, Pray, Love? If we’re lucky! Stay tuned.


Episode 23- Midnight in America

In this edition of Electric Book Machine, Lauren and Isaac read Jonathan W. White’s cultural history Midnight in America: Darkness, Sleep, and Dreams During the Civil War. We talk about weird dreams, superstitions, and how psychic Abraham Lincoln probably wasn’t. War is hell, but sleep deprivation might be worse!

Lauren has, like, a double concussion, so things are moving slowly this spring. More fun stuff to come from your favorite literate couple… eventually!
