Episode 94 – Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas

Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson

In Part 2 of our Big Podcast Crossover Event with I Don’t Even Own A Television, J.W. and Collision joined us to discuss James Patterson’s Suzanne’s Diary For Nicholas. It’s a beautiful example of the power of Telling, Not Showing. Specifically, telling your children all about your sex life with way too much detail. Turn off your Macy Gray albums and get ready to dive into a book so stupid that it took four book podcasters to fully unpack it!

Content warning: This book and our discussion of it contains both miscarriage and the death of an infant.
