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!

Episode 20- Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

actlikeLauren and Isaac are joined by special guest, comedian, and single lady Emily Townswick to discuss Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. This book is full of so much good advice for how to tame your local psychopath into being a decent partner. We also discuss some racially dicey terms Steve uses and make a lot of assumptions about his three marriages (allegedly).
