We interrupt our usual backlog catch-up for an update/announcement episode. We'll fill you in on the current state of DQBTalkBooks, finally let you in on the not-so-secret Secret Project we've been teasing for nearly a year, and tell you about some things we read this year outside of podcasting!
In the second half of our 2018 Kids Books special, we discuss and compare 'Marlon Bundo's A Day in the Life of the Vice President' by Charlotte Pence and its parody version 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents: A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo." We also delve into a lot of political discussions, parts of which are hilarisad in retrospect.
In our inaugural "Kids Books in November so Tony and MK can focus on Nanowrimo" episode, the bitches sit down with to classic children's stories about gay parenting.
Here it is! Our too-late episode about our weekend at BookCon 2019! We'll tell you all about the awesome panels we saw, all the new books we added to our TBR lists, and drop some hints about upcoming plans for the podcast.
See the post on our blog for a complete list of the authors and books we mentioned in this episode:
Join us for the second half of our discussion of Shirley Jackson's horror classic 'The Haunting of Hill House," In which Mk can't remember the book that this book reminds her of*, and we all go down a rabbit hole discussing the many screen adaptations of the novel.
Edit: Mk is now fairly certain she was thinking of "The Veiled Picture" by Anne Radcliffe
If August was our drunkest episode yet, October was our most distracted. Join Jared, Erin, Mk, and Tony as we talk about horror classic The Haunting of Hill House in between bunny trails about ghosts, other podcasts, and cancelled television.
Join us for part 2 of our discussion of Robert Cormier's 'The Chocolate War,' where we discuss the reasons why it remains one of the American Library Association's most frequently banned and challenged books. We also go down a rabbit hole of Catholic Church hierarchy, and are all very unnerved by the word "raffle."
In honor of Banned Books Week 2018, we discuss one of the American Library Association's most frequently banned and challenged books, Robert Cormier's 'The Chocolate War.' Join us as Jared mistakes Jesus Christ for a high school senior, Tony disappoints his family, and we are all very subtle about our feelings regarding certain characters.
In our drunkest episode to date, we gather to discuss 'An Unsuitable Job for a Woman' by P.D. James. In his final appearance as one of the Usual Bitches, Adam alienates all of our listeners, then Tony has an interesting story about blood, and Mk vanishes between segments.
