We’re deep into Super Constitution now and this is our chance to see how the sausage is made (HINT: it requires a killing ray). 

Another big question is answered as Miss O’Hara makes a visual appearance and… spoiler alert, she’s hot. We’re talking Pepperidge Farm-guy hot!

Also, Mike’s Real or Fanfic score takes an adjustment, despite having a new theme song sent in by a listener.

Well, after a rough start we’re back on track. Super Constitution was a little strange out of the gate but now it’s nothing more than a classic sci-fi nov– haha, I can’t finish that sentence. It is of course a baffling, shocking, hilarious stew of words that somehow manages to get weirder as it goes along!

Episode #125 – Book 21: Super Constitution

(This book may be a little hard to find because our Patreon supporters learned what it was a week ago and bought up all the copies. Join them so you don’t miss out in the future! patreon.com/372pages )

The podcast is now officially old enough to legally drink, if you are going by the number of books we’ve covered and not episodes, which would probably be the more accurate way of doing it. But that’s a good thing, because it might need a few to deal with this book!

We’re pleased to announce Book 21. We have no record of how it came to be recommended to us, so please let us know if it was you so we can tell who to blame. It sounds very promising and we’re excited to dive in.

ASSIGNMENT: Read through Article 4

Sorry Mr. King, but Gump & Co comes to an end in this episode. Console yourself by interviewing Freedom Williams of C&C Music Factory. But not until you’ve listened to this episode, because there’s a ton going on!

Well, there’s mostly: A) oysters B) asses & shit C) escalating degrees of assin’ around. But there’s also a healthy does of real time word count padding in between beloved characters dying and or hitting their kids while speculating what type of underwear said kids are wearing. 

Here’s the updated document with Real or Fanfic Statistics, courtesy of Lucas. And here’s the trailer for the Indian Gump remake.

Episode #119 – Antigua Ep 7 – Eagle Man!

Support the podcast on Patreon and be the first to find out what the next book is! patreon.com/372pages

Weeks ago, when we wandered out of the trees and mountains of the plains of Antigua and hopped on that unicorn’s back, we never could have imagined the places she’d take us. Or the sheer, unbelievable, immense number of characters we’d meet along the way.

So this, our last episode of Antigua: The Land of Fairies Wizards and Heroes is a bittersweet one. We can only hope a Head Centaur blows dust on the writing ambitions of Larry and Denise to revive them and they finish volume 2!
