Our three hosts enjoying a group hug in a divey restaurant booth table.

We’re your hosts, Jackie, Rachel, and Theo

Prefer your books in comedy form, but still want to sound smart at parties? We got you. We’re three best friends who routinely make each other cry with laughter, and we want you to hang with us!

Join us each Thursday to discover the hilarity hidden in the classics as we break down the greatest works of Western literature, then decide whether they should stay in the canon - or become cannon fodder. No reading required (on your part, at least).
