This week’s post may be a short one, since one of us just came back from Barrelhouse Writer Camp and maybe needs to sleep for a lot of hours. Such a fun time! Writing by a creek, making new friends, going on a couple hikes, drinking some beers, helping a minion fulfill his final destiny.
Anyway, we read The Road this week. By Cormac McCarthy? We’re guessing you’ve heard of it. Somehow neither of us had read it before, and it seemed a fitting time to rectify that.
In the episode, we talk about whether the book’s post-apocalyptic hellscape feels like a thought exercise or an actual, possible future. We also talk about the book’s style, which is apparently polarizing, at least to some Goodreads reviewers. And because we’re both goofy idiots, we stunt-cast the movie with our ideal pairings.
As always, you can stream the show right here on our site, or download the mp3 file. You can also find us in the iTunes store, or just about any podcast app, where you can subscribe (for free!) and never miss another installment.
