June 30th, 2018 - Ineffable

In episode two, Casye and Elizabeth will discuss one of their favorite books, Good Omens: The Nice & Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by the incomparable Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. If you have never read this book before, you are in for a treat! The book was written in the late 80's, so there are things in it that some youngsters won't understand, like landlines, telephone sales people, cassettes, radios that aren't in cars, and little-to-no internet.

What could possibly go wrong when a demon and an angel lose the antichrist? A lot, actually, and it's hilarious. 

Fair warning, politics and religion will come up. We won't so much as fall from grace as saunter vaguely downwards....

June 15th, 2018-In a hole, there lived a hobbit...

That's right folks! In our first ever podcast episode, we'll cover the legendary book The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. We are excited to kick this little experiment off right! We will be discussing plot and Elizabeth's undying love for Middle Earth. This will not be Peter Jackson's idea of the book either, which means we will not draw it out into three movies for the love of money and taking artistic liberties with the battles.

Bilbo Baggins lives a quiet life until 13 dwarves show up unexpectedly on his doorstep. They offer him the adventure of a lifetime....

(This podcast will contain spoilers for every book we read. Don't say we didn't warn you. Nevermind that the book has been out since 1937....)
