Unprintable: The LitReactor Podcast Episode 6 - Spoilers!
Every month, Unprintable will take an irreverent look at books, the publishing industry, reading, writing, and more; featuring the know-it-all geekery of LitReactor columnist Cath Murphy, Education Director Rob W. Hart, and Managing Editor Joshua Chaplinsky.
Episode 6 - Spoilers!
We've bounced back and are once again in top form for your podcast-listening pleasure. First: the appetizers. We talk about your new favorite tumblr, Lousy Book Covers; the first bookless library that isn't your home computer; and Scientology's panty knot over Lawrence Wright's Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief...
...which just so happens to be what Rob is reading this week. That and like 5 other books, all of which he goes into excruciating detail about. Who does he think he is? Josh from last episode? Josh and Cath, on the other hand, are reading a paltry book apiece; Behind the Beautiful Forevers and Fight Song, respectively. The former is about life in the slums of Mumbai and the latter is a kick-ass satire from LitReactor instructor and friend of the site, Joshua Mohr.
Also, somewhere in there we manage to get sidetracked by a long conversation about clone sex.
SPOILER ALERT! This episode's topic is Spoilers!, the bane of the under-read and -watched. Rob thinks you're all babies and Josh tells everyone who killed Laura Palmer. Oh yeah, and Cath is pregnant.
