5.10 | IT Chapter 2, Haylen Beck, & Bigotry as Baddie

Oh snap! I guess Lee and Eddie are off to the movies again! That’s right, tuck a mini burrito in your jacket pocket, and sneak several fun-sized chocolate bars into your socks cause it’s time for IT: Chapter Two! Eddie finally read a book from this century and felt pretty good about it (and then obviously complained). And the two of them explore the idea of Pennywise as the embodiment of bigotry.

Too deep? Yeah, me too… Pocket burrito anyone?

5.7 | Joshilyn Jackson, Sébastien Japrisot, & … Suspense

What is the definition of suspense? Will Lee and Eddie solve it before time runs out? Will Lee ever stop talking about glass blowing? Will Eddie ever stop trying to get weird books on the show with really thin justification? Will this series of questions ever end? Maybe you will find out in this episode… or will you?

This episode, Lee is on the cutting edge of new and brilliant crime and mystery, with Joshilyn Jackson’s Never Have I Ever, and Eddie is back on their bullshit, reviewing World War I novels from the 90s.

5.5 | Slasher, Alafair Burke, and “Crime” or “Murder”?

Oh dang! Lee and Eddie are back with an all new episode full of banter, foolishness, and absolute hijinks! Eddie’s been binge watching Netflix so long they can’t remember what year it is, and Lee has been scouring the earth for the quality Crime fiction this world needs to hear about!

All this, and more in the latest episode of Crime Time Podcast!

5.3 | C.J. Tudor, Kathy Reichs, & IT Chapter Two

Hoo boy! Eddie has been waiting to watch the IT Part Two trailer just for you guys! Will IT live up to the hype? Will IT be too scary for Eddie to survive? Hard to say, you’d better tune in! And while you’re here we’ve got some great recommendations for your bookshelves! Lee’s keeping that contemporary feel coming with CJ Tudor’s amazing debut, The Chalk Man. Is it a biography of Eddie’s secret undercover life as Banksy? Probably not!

Meanwhile, Eddie wants to start a fight on the internet, because let’s face it, the internet? Wayyyyyy to civil and full of friendly discussion! That’s right, Eddie loves trash, and will do anything for that love–except diss Patricia Cornwell! It’s on!

5.2 | Holly Seddon, Virginia Woolf, & J.R.R. Tolkien

A whole new episode? You’ve gotta be Jolkien Rolkien Rolkien Tolkien! That’s right, the gang is back and ready to talk about the real issues facing the world today! Like, is a dog biography literature? Is Eddie stretching it a bit? Is Lee going to put up with Eddie’s nonsense? If Eddie suddenly and mysteriously goes missing, is Lee the one responsible?

Only joking folks! Eddie is one hundred percent fine and hasn’t been replaced by a more handsome and slightly cleverer body double called Jed! That would be crazy! Why would you think that was a thing that happened? Ha ha! Oh, you guys! Anyway, here’s Wonderwall.

5.1 | US, Richard Bachman, & Michelle Dicinoski

Oh dang! Guess who it is now (still Lee and Eddie)! We’re back, and never stopping not stopping! This episode we discuss Jordan Peele’s new horrific masterpiece: US, Michelle Dicinoski’s surprisingly non-spooky Ghost Wife, and Stephen King (as Bachman) is back(man)!

Well a happy new year to all of our lovely listeners! Welcome to part one of a spectacularly exciting 2018 retrospective!

Join Lee and Eddie as they shoot the shit and take a look back at the year(s) that was!

Then chuck on over to part two, so the dang party goes all night!

4.9 | Richard Bachman, Stephen King, & Alexandre Dumas

Oh dang! Stephen King has a secret clone locked in a dairy farm’s basement! Will Lee uncover the truth in time? Will Eddie pen a critically acclaimed screenplay starring Amanda Bynes? Hard to say.

Eddie is moving forward in time, and we leave the 18th century for the much more recent 19th with Alexandre Dumas’ Count of Monte Christo!

4.6 | Umberto Eco, Ling Ma, & Book Promises

Oh dang! Eddie’s still on that Gothic kick! Time to get way too meta with Umberto Eco’s Name of the Rose! Lee has been overcome with lyrical awe with Ling Ma’s breathtaking debut, Severance. And we want to know what promises a book makes when you pick it up (Oh no! A talking book, don’t freak out!)

Is William of Baskervilles just a sneaky Sherlock Holmes clone? Will Lee recover from the wonder that is Severance in time to review it without weeping? Is Eddie secretly eating books for sustenance?

Find out in this (not at all) suspenseful episode of… Crime Time!
