Episode 249: The Lightning Round Returns
This week, Josh and Dietrich continue their timed exploration of topics from years past. After acknowledging that ragging on Ayn Rand is the only acceptable reason to abuse the lightning round timer, they dive into calling an authors bluff when they threaten main characters, a bewildering topic with excellent episode art, and explore the best relationships in literary history. In addition, Dietrich raves about the astonishing followup to podcast favorite Dark Matter, Josh talks about a novella collection featuring outstanding works by LGBTQ authors, and they both talk about the best book on writing ever written. Finally, they wrap up with the horrors of Chernobyl, a look back at the finest fantasy trilogy ever made, and talk a bit about next week's Library Police finale, and what comes next.
