Episode 04: Books!

In this Episode 04: Books, we talk about all of our favorite books! Prepare yourself for how Terry distanced himself for the shallowness of West Hollywood and retreated into books. We discuss the Idaho “Book It” program (bookitprogram.com), A Glee/Hunger Games crossover, the casting of the Hunger Games film, why we read young adult literature over everything else and why Terry has a Kim Possible text message tone that interrupts the episode.

We also try out a new longer format and feature guests/siblings Rocky Brewer and Jamie Brewer.

    Oh buddy, you are so right about West Hollywood! They be haters!

  • Sarah Portland

    Dude, you guys should read Christopher Moore!

      I tried to get Terry read him. I told him to start with Bloodsucking Fiends. He said he didn't like the writing style… or something like that. I think he might enjoy Fool though.

    I am a huge fan and I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your comic, admiring your artwork, and listening to your podcast. I hope that there will always be an overwhelming amount of your greatness.

    Oh wow. So, I guess the podcast is posted to two different places. Not sure which one to comment on, so I’ll just repeat it here since this one seems to be getting more traffic. haha

    Loving the podcast. I just wanted to tell you about a new gay young adult book that came out over Christmas. It’s Don’t Let Me Go by J.H. Trumble. I absolutely loved it. I posted a review on it on my blog http://hexijosh.wordpress.com/2012/01/03/review-d… and the author even commented on it! 😀

    I figure you guys might enjoy it since we seem to have some converging book preferences. Can’t wait to hear more!
