Sometimes there’s a book that it seems like everyone’s read… but you haven’t. Some of us are normal and take it in stride. But a few of us feel a deep sense of shame about having not read it. Has that shame ever led us to lie about reading a book? That’s what we’re talking about today.
Listen in as we discuss:
- The differences between Minnesotan and Canadian accents
- What big, cultural milestone series has Dave not read?
- How one type of literature haunts Barnabas every day
- Why Aaron didn’t read Harry Potter until 2016
- Jason Bateman vs Paul Rudd, and why Michael B. Jordan isn’t a convincing villain
Among the books mentioned today:

- Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bissinger
- The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
- Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
