Episode 36 - Fanta C

If you follow us on social media you've already seen this episode - we released a Very Special Plague Episode back in May (when WAS May?  Did we have a May?  What happened in May?  Am I thinking of June?  Time has no meaning!) on YouTube, so you could see our beautiful faces!  We're now releasing just the audio, because many of you never saw the YouTube version and just subscribe via a podcast app.  You can get both versions here!  I recommend the YouTube one just because I wore my finest housecoat for you.


It sounds like that because we did it on Zoom.  By this time, y'all should be used to this.

Yeah, we read another Jude Deveraux book and yeah, somebody sprinkled some crack on it again!  This one almost broke us, y'all.  It's got: fantasy shopping montages!  Kidnappings!  Insane family picnics!  Weird racial business in Harlem!  Improbable lawyers!  Literally cosplaying a mass murder to the tune of several million dollars!  We only covered half of this book in this podcast and it still took us an hour and a half!
