Episode 78 - Killer Chef: A James Patterson Bookshot by Jeffrey J. Keyes and James Patterson

77 minutes

Chris asked a bookstore employee to take him to the worst book they had seen lately, so we ended up getting BLASTED by this BOOKSHOT from James Patterson. 

Audio quality warning: Chris accidentally positioned Paris's mic backwards so her audio is gonna' be a bit roomier than normal. Sorry!

Content Warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, we discuss murder, poisoning, use of the word gypsy, there are sounds of gunshots, and Paris gives a PSA about washing your goddamn hands before engaging in sexual activity. There are also mild spoilers for Malazan Book #3 - Memories of Ice when we have our good media discussion around 00:56 - 1:01.

Oops! Around 1:02 Paris says "anagram" when she meant to say "analogue."

Note for YouTube users: This originally aired on 2/18/2020 but had to be reuploaded on 6/2/2022 to resolve a copyright claim for a short piece of background music.
