Episode 12- Patriot Games

PatriotGamesLauren 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!


Bust out your jabots for our next book!

rbgIf you did not know because you didn’t just google it right now, jabots are the collars many lady judges wear. We’re talking about them because we finally settled on our next book: Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik’s Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I suspect we’ll be learning the details of her exploits as a badass lady lawyer and judge and how she can do more push-ups than all of us and if there is a god, she will never die, at least not during this presidency. AMIRITE? Everything’s terrible, but RBG is great, and we’re excited to read something good before we dive into our next hate-read. Join us!
