Episode 91: Content Warning Part II–Alene’s Hard Pass

download

In this episode, we continue what we began in Episode 90  and bring you Alene’s hard pass. Content warning for discussion of various unpleasant topics, primarily suicide. Apologies for the poor sound quality, we didn’t feel like we would make it through this one again if we tried to re-record it.

This week, Anna reported in on her experience at BEA (aka BookExpo America) and did her worst to booktalk some of the books she learned about in New York City! Then we discussed our first encounter with the show Leverage, and were both very happy about Fun Home–the book and the show.
