You probably think you don't have time for another podcast. You'll think that until you get snowed in during a paralyzing snow storm and begin roaming the internet far and wide for entertainment. You'll find Dan Wilbur interviewing Emma Straub and you will wish you had listened to this podcast throughout time. For it has the answer, my friends. The answer is out there and it is in the podcast. Many good questions and answers, especially for the book lover!
I love it!
This is the greatest podcast about books ever! And I'm not just saying that because I'm the host- wait! I mean... I'm NOT the host. I'm just some guy who doesn't know anything- WAIT! No: I'm a Nobel Laureate who knows everything and I still love this podcast. Right? Right.
Anyway, who wants a Jell-O shot?
