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.

This is our first Nora Roberts book but we both felt it probably wasn't a great representation of her work (OR A GREAT CHRISTMAS BOOK FOR THAT MATTER.)  We'll definitely do another one that's not a series paperback and compare.

Our promo on this episode is for Deep Into History, a podcast by Courtney's podcast boyfriend Arjun.
