As it turns out, we're not very good at staying on topic.
We started the podcast thinking "oh, half hour, tops" and a subject we both like: Chuck Palahniuk, and his books. After all, Chuck is a one-name author in these parts (such as "Have you read Chuck's latest book?"), and it our deep-seated belief that he is a genre unto himself.
The problem with starting on a topic such as books--even if we thought we could limit it to one author--is that these are books we're talking about. And I'm an English major. And we both love to read.
This leads to digressions, obviously. Somehow, I managed to bring up Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides Lord of the Rings, I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe, numerous other books that somehow seemed fitting, and a vague mention of Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, and George Orwell.
Moving off topic as usual, we cover just how sexy it is that Josh can speak latin (and oh, how I wish I too could understand latin). And he tries to explain the difference between nuclear fission and nuclear fusion
We are trying to work through our growing pains. Josh, as usual sounds awesome, while occasionally I'm more echo-ee than a seemingly empty girls bathroom when the girl you're trashing on is hidden in the stall.
Next week we're talking about knitting, unless someone leaves us an audio comment to give us something to think about. So, comment!
And, thank you everyone for your love and support! (is it too early for crap like this?) Josh said we had over 24 listens of the last podcast, which I believe is more listens than my other podcast got for all four episodes together. Which means, of course, that everyone is hear to listen to Josh. I'll try to let him talk more next time. And no. I have no...
Edit: I have no idea where I was going with that last sentence. That thought has been lost to eternity.
