Rated Explicit for Language
This episode was full of announcements! First, if you were around the website last week you’ll know that it kept going down. That was because I was hard at work
breaking making a entirely new website. While much of the site looks the same, it should be faster and better able to handle the upcoming launch of our second podcast. Anais will be leading the Literary Roadhouse bookclub! It will be a monthly bookclub and our first novel is… The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood! You can get your copy here. We’ll be reading the book through November/December and the first episode will be the first Thursday in January. So grab a copy, and tweet along with #LRHBookclub
Who knew George Saunders was so funny and brilliant, and why didn’t you tell us. Everyone except Rammy was blown away by this story but he kept us from floating away into a love fest. We talk about the laughter, the sadness, masculinity and when art get’s in the way of consumption.
Don’t forget to rate the story! For the history of our goofy system, see Anais’ post “Read Short Stories or Ray Bradbury Cries.” On a scale of 1-6 Bradberries, how do you rate The Semplica Girls? Tell us in the comments below or via voicemail, and we will give the final tally on the next episode.

This is the sort of story I would censor if I got to have my own fascist dystopia.
Also, 5 out of 6.
