In which Courtney wrote a paper

Happy not-quite-Thanksgiving, y'all!  We were going to do two episodes this month as usual, but we got so pissed off at these racist-ass Native American romance books that
a) we decided to do one SuperSpecial instead! and b) Courtney wrote a paper about it.
Look for our Extra Awesome Thanksgiving SuperSpecial later this month, and enjoy the fruits of Courtney's research now!  (I've added some ridiculous covers to illustrate this bullshit.)
Hey y’all,
This episode is a monster! We read two different books and had originally planned to have an episode for each. But, after thinking about the genre of books we are examining as a whole we decided to combine them both into a Bodice Tipplers Super Special! Like the Babysitters Club but with a whole lot more sexual politics. While we had a great time discussing Kathleen Eagle’s Carved in Stone, we did not feel comfortable giving Madeline Baker’s First Love, Wild Love, the typical Bodice Tipplers treatment. The first book is a roma…

I think, like, a lot of people have gone there before.



Before there was Chris Pine's dick in a Robert the Bruce movie, there was Shatner getting shirtless all over the place and introducing the world to the ancient martial art of "duck real slow and then do that thing with your one fist on top of the other one".  I'd make a joke about Kirk fucking green ladies, but as a real Trekkie I know damned well that Kirk was, in fact, married to his ship and never fucked any green ladies at all, although he did definitely do it with three or four non-green ladies during the run of TOS.

I love Star Trek and I love vintage romance novels and I can absolutely admit that they share a lot in terms of plot structure, heavy handed dialogue, and seriously silly costumes, although romance novels only wish they had an Uhura.  Also, McCoy and Spock are a totally classic romance novel couple and eventually dear god I hope they finally got to bang it out and quit bitching at each other.

PS - by the way, we are TOTALLY podcasting about Imzadi one of these days.

    1. I read it unironically in high school; I think Courtney is mostly a Trek virgin. It's gonna be White Nonsense In Spaaaaaaace!
