Episode 86 – The Amorous Intrigues and Adventures of Aaron Burr

The Amorous Intrigues and Adventures of Aaron Burr by Anonymous

 

Since Alex & Eliza left us unsatisfied, we decided to read some anonymously-written 19th century erotica. And who better to accompany us for The Amorous Intrigues and Adventures of Aaron Burr than Mackenzi Lee, author of The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and Bygone Badass Broads? This is not the most erotic book we’ve ever read for the podcast, but it is definitely the oldest and possibly the most fat-positive. Join us as we learn about exactly how reliable with the ladies Aaron Burr was.

Episode 73 – Diary of an Oxygen Thief

Diary of an Oxygen Thief by Anonymous

 

Kait, Renata, and their guest KL (@momebie, @LaraEckener) read Diary of an Oxygen Thief by Anonymous. They’re glad the author hasn’t revealed his identity, because otherwise it might be too hard for us to resist the urge to go egg his house. This is a rambling tale of a man who hates and hurts women and doesn’t get nearly as much comeuppance as we would have preferred. Listen now to find out how much we wish The Rock and/or Wolverine could have saved us from this book!

Content warning: Almost everything imaginable. This book contains child abuse, child sexual abuse, rape, emotional abuse, self-harm, and pretty much every other intense topic you can imagine.

Apologetic note: Apologies for the annoying audio issues in the first half of this episode! Renata had the wrong microphone settings and she is very, very sorry and promises never to do it again.

Promotional note: Come see us live at the Freepoint Hotel in Cambridge, MA on June 20th at 7pm!

Readers advisory: Here.

Candy pairing:  Kait says an expired, moldy Yorkie bar, KL says salt licorice, Renata says chewed up gum stuck to the floor of a bar.

Coming up next: Sweet Valley High #1: Double Love by Francine Pascal.
