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.
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!
ICYMI, our next book will be Greg Sestero’s The Disaster Artist: My Life inside ‘The Room’ The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made. We’re fans of trash movies around here and any insight into the mad, bizarre, awful genius behind them. We both loved the Disaster Artist movie and are pumped to read the book that inspired it. To get you pumped, here’s the scene my sister showed me in anticipation of watching The Room for the first time:
As you might have guessed, we’re about to veer right into dated and incredibly sexist relationship advice from the ’90s territory. For our next episode, we’re reading John Gray, “Ph.D.”‘s massive bestseller because people are terrible, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. It’s probably going to really strengthen our communication. As in, we will both say “fuck” a lot while we talk about how much we hated it. OR will we surprise ourselves and everyone else and get something useful out of it? PROBABLY NOT, but tune in to find out anyway! And go to your local thrift store and pick up one of many old copies discarded just like the marriages they were meant to save and read along. Cheers!
