427 - Adrenaline Junkie by Les Edgerton

So this is the second time we're reviewing a memoir, which is always an odd proposition, because you're essentially agreeing to review someone's life. I think this turned out pretty nice, and we'll be interviewing Les in the coming weeks as well. Check it out and come back next week for another book - An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen.

423 - Interlude

I know we promised some Demon Theory, and it's coming next week for sure. Until then, we talk about some book lists, some bad sex scenes, plagiarism, and probably the best moment is when Livius ad-libs some sci-fi poetry! It's... special.

422 - Interlude

Hey, we're back with an interlude. This one gets a little weird. From power outages, to Livius paying $600,000 for a Fiero, to some rigorous research into state age of consent laws... Yeah, it gets interesting. Enjoy!

421 - In the House in the Dark of the Woods

Here it is! Our 31st (?) book of the year! This is one of those rare instances where a book arrives on our doorstep and we choose to review it. So Little Brown sent this along to Livius and it sounded interesting, so we gave it a shot.

419 - Alice Isn’t Dead by Joseph Fink

Check out our review of Alice Isn't Dead. Hopefully you're already familiar with the story from it's original incarnation - a podcast. We've talked about it on the podcast previously, and it's gained a pretty large following. And it's got Jasika Nicole narrating, for heaven's sake. And head over and support us on Patreon if you're interested in hearing a pretty hefty spoiler talk about the book!
