Hidden Sins by Selena Montgomery (a.k.a Stacey Abrams) - Episode 117

69 minutes
We read Hidden Sins this week because we figured that there’s gotta’ be a catch to Stacey Abrams. She can’t be perfect, right? Her political career is intense and noteworthy, but surely her romance novels are terrible! If you aren't familiar with Ms. Abrams, she is a former Georgia state house rep and current voting rights activist largely credited with registering black voters in Georgia to swing that state in the 2020 presidential election. Plus, we’ve read a lot of books by right-wing conservatives and were curious about authors on the other side of the political spectrum.

Content Warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, today’s episode includes discussion of: general action-movie levels of violence, child abuse, infidelity, religious cults, and brief sexuality.
