this week's episode starts with the news as usual... with a brief interlude about emily's body hair.
then proceeds to cover the usefulness of pinterest before diving into a tailspin of a bunny trail concerning the words "genre" and "YA"
there may be an inappropriate amount of passion concerning the silly topic, and the decibel of the conversation increases...ummm... a bit.

in this episode we attempt to discuss gender roles in YA,
but end up getting distracted and bunny trailing... a lot.

in this week's episode, there is no news. mostly because vic spaced out on it...
what we DO have is an awesome interview with author Kendra Saunders.
she self-published her debut novel INANIMATE OBJECTS, a "dark and glittering novel of artists and magicians, muses and immortals. At the heart of the story is Leonidas Bondi, a charismatic young artist who falls under the watchful gaze of Matilda August. Matilda has been a patron to the stars for hundreds of years, but this fickle muse is more than a little taken with her new protégé, blurring her own lines of work and obsession. Providing opposition is Matilda’s son, Elisha, a moody figure who holds revenge above all else after he suffers a terrible wrong."
i was impressed with her vivid imagination and insights into humanity.
i hope you enjoy the interview as much as we did!
