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.
At last! Lauren and Isaac are back, sipping tea (actual tea), and trying to figure out what is even happening here. We 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.
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!
Lauren and Isaac read Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik’s Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A fun, light biography that exposes our hatred of the patriarchy and love of liberal “activist” judges.
Lauren and Isaac read the masterfully ghostwritten memoirs of their hero, Detective Lt. Joe Kenda, I Will Find You: Solving Killer Cases from My Life Fighting Crime. It’s full of horrific murders, deadpan quips, and general badassery. SPOILER: we love Kenda even more after reading his book.
