We’re still sorry you only got six-ish Podcasts of Christmas, but now that 2014 is in full effect we’ll try and keep the episodes rolling as regularly as possible. This month, we revisit this whole aversion to negative book reviews thing (look for Eric’s follow up series running all week), the best audiobooks for your bucks, Korean monster movies, the uncensored 4th Lord of the Rings book “Boner Party: There and Back Again,” sensory books that you have to wear a vest to experience, and Caligula.
No Drunk Review this month; we’ll have one in March though so stay tuned for that. If you want to suggest a book for us to subject whoever is next to, be sure to let us know.
