In this week’s episode Lee and Eddie Crimance a river (over you, dear listeners), chat about books out of order (and Lee’s betrayal of all that Eddie holds dear), and discuss the murky depths of the ever controversial (and we’ve been belatedly informed, mispronounced) Gillian Flynn.
If any listeners out there have recommendations for great Crimance reads to start Eddie off on her journey into the genre, let us know via Twitter!
That’s right, Lee and Eddie will be discussing one of the greatest horror authors to have ever lived, Shirley Jackson! The ever controversial short story “The Lottery” is the major topic of discussion. What makes it so creepy? We literally don’t know, but we do know you can listen to A.M. Homes read it on the New Yorker: Fiction Podcast available for free on iTunes! In fact, do that right now!
Lee and Eddie go head to head in yet another book vs book where neither has read the other! Will We Have Always Lived in the Castle win over The Haunting of Hill House? Are either really committed to anything other than victory? Were they both just happy to read some great books? Find out in this week’s episode!
This week Lee reviews A Game For All the Family by Sophie Hannah, and asks viewers to tell her who to read next! Eddie compares two classic spy novels with le Carré vs Fleming in a head to head grudge match! Who will win Eddie’s preference? Does Lee know who James Bond is?? Does Spy Fi count as mystery?? Will Eddie ever stop interrupting Lee??? There is no telling what answers (if any) lie in this week’s episode!
This week Lee and Eddie have a brand new microphone! That’s right listeners, feast your ears on the dulcet sounds of Lee’s hiccups, Eddie’s non-stop complaints, and the dissapointing ending to… The Truth!
Gasp in shock as your intrepid (foolish) hosts google how to download a ghost! Laugh with joy (and goodwill) as your charming (greedy) hosts ask you for some money! And finally, slow clap as Lee and Eddie give you great (shallow) insight into some pretty great books! Or just listen quietly, that works too!

In this week’s episode, Lee and Eddie forget to wish everyone a happy new year, talk haunted sperm, houses, and childhoods, and take wild guesses as to the truth at the end of… The Truth!
