Episode 138 – Queer Venting About Instinct

Murder Games (Instinct) by James Patterson

How desperate is Kait for scraps? She pre-ordered the next Murder Games novel just for another dumb murder story about gay people, despite all her issues with the first one. And boy, there were issues. Join Kait and Wren as they delve into what works and what doesn’t in “James Patterson’s” foray into queer protagonists, and gush endlessly over how much they love the incredibly silly show based on it.

Episode 120 – Murder Games (Instinct)

Murder Games (Instinct) by James Patterson

Since James Patterson & Howard Roughan went to the trouble of giving their book two different titles, we decided that we needed the power of two book podcasts to discuss it. So we had our old friends J.W. and Chris from I Don’t Even Own a Television (@IDEOTVpod) join us for Murder Games aka Instinct! The best thing about this book is that it got Alan Cumming an acting job. The worst thing about this book is…well, we’ll tell you at the end of the next chapter.

Readers advisory: Here.
