61. The Circle

Jennifer and Kaylia talk about the evils of privacy vs the evils of entitlement, the relative charm factor of Emma Watson, and how a book neither one of us loved still had some really cool provocative bits… that somehow got left out of the film. Hopefully, our episode elicits more “smiles” than “frowns

60. Ender’s Game

Matthew and Kaylia discuss such topics as: Is it a kid’s book or just a book about kids? What is the message, lesson, or argument of the book? Is Ender more victim or hero? How blameless is he really? Plus all the controversy about the author and a warning not to meet your heroes. Enjoy!

59. High Fidelity

e of the best book-to-film adaptations ever made (thanks to John Cusack), the book is a living symbol of the longevity (?) importance (?) symbolism (?) of Pop music. And yes, the book IS pop music. But more than that the story deals with the shifting gender politics of the 90s, the focus of the man in the rom-com genre, and let’s not forget the music, the music, the music. Plus we gush about the amazing casting. Enjoy!
