Here are the contents of the podcast if you wish to skip around:

Starting at 00:57 – We discuss Christos Tsiolkas’s 2008 book The Slap (affiliate links: Amazon, B&N, Book Depository). Short version: We didn’t care for it.

Starting at 13:03 – Whiskey Jenny and I could not have been more excited for the movie of Veronica Mars. Nor could we have been more excited to talk about it for a really long time on this podcast.

Starting at 39:55 – We answer a piece of listener mail! What book would you put on the guest room nightstand in preparation of a guest’s arrival?

45:50 – Closing remarks and outro.
