We’ve used some racy dialogue in previous episodes—once we found it necessary to bleep ourselves—but we’re apologizing now for some of the foul language we found necessary to discuss Last of the Great #4. Don’t listen with the kids Dad! Don’t listen with your Mom kids! And don’t listen with Fox news… uh… watchers of Fox News! We have a massive stack of books to discuss and a whole lot of news as well, so sit back and enjoy our bleeping show!
