This week our hosts discuss Charles Bukowski’s short story about an alcoholic who is diagnosed with hemorrhoids and undergoes surgery. The story divides the hosts. Rammy hates the story and breaks podcast rating convention. Meanwhile, Gerald does his best to find something positive to say about a story he finds distasteful without merit or message. On the ladies’ side, Maya enthusiastically embraces the story’s vulgarity for its honesty. In Anais’s opinion, the vulgarity has pros and cons which she explores in the discussion.
