5.11 | C.J. Tudor, Gilly Macmillan, & Christine

Eddie was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, ’til this podcast came along and truly changed the world! Aside from never reading any books and obnoxiously interrupting anyone who has, Eddie’s many talents include: Never letting this Nanny joke go, killing it at karaoke (as in straight up murder for the ears), and just being generally handsome and wonderful. What’s that, you ask? What is the episode about? Oh, just some great books (think Gilly MacMillan & C.J. Tudor) and films (Stephen King’s 80’s masterpiece Christine) … but back to Eddie!

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?

5.9 | Crawl, Trinkets, & True Story

In this absolutely brilliant episode of (your fave podcast) Crime Time, Lee crawls into the cinema for a terrifying encounter with an alligator, and Eddie really brings the mood down by talking about actual true crime. But don’t worry, Lee’s got your back with a great recommendation from their latest Netflix binge, and a question about what should go on the back of a book.

If you are a film student who thinks Eddie is stupid for not liking Donnie Darko that one time ten years ago, please send your comments to: literallynooneaskedyou@pleasedonttalktome.com

5.6 | Detective Pikachu, Rachel Caine, & All Will Be Revealed

Here come Lee and Eddie! This week Eddie can’t stop talking about Sonic’s teeth long enough to review Detective Pikachu! But you know that adorable detective solves a damn crime and it’s too much for anyone to handle. Lee is still talking about Rachel Caine, and Eddie is starting to wonder if Lee’s accepting bribes.

All of this and more in the latest and greatest 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!

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)!
