Episode 11 - Maradonia and the Seven Bridges by Gloria Tesch

113 minutes

Although not strictly necessary, we recommend listening to this episode along with the other Maradonia episodes in the following order:

We've returned to the fantasy realm with the first book in the Maradonia saga. It was written by a child/teenager. I know, I know - Terrible Book Club shouldn't be attacking children! We're not - we assure you. While this was written when the author was younger, she and her family continue to tout her work as amazing years later. This book/saga has become popular on the internet due to its struggles with syntax, grammar, spelling, and general storytelling in addition to the Tesch family's antics in relation to promoting the book.

Many thanks to listener Robert Kennedy for saving this episode and sending it to us to re-post after it was lost in 2015!
