A tangent episode in which Kaisha, Kelsey and Dylan devolve into a giggling mass of literary nerd nonsense. Come along as we discuss vampire qualifications and the need for a good plague book. We discuss the characters we love to hate, Dylan’s contributions to the podcast, and Kaisha locking herself away to read Dune because she was hot and angry. We talk about the books that have brought us solace or fed our souls, and most importantly, we debate which fictional world would be the most epic to live in.
