Bad On Paper

Apr 5, 2023

Time for us to answer the age old question: Is the movie ever better than the book? Our current selves have a very different answer than we would have had 5 years ago. 


We’re talking about our favorite and least favorite book to screen adaptations, and the adaptations we are excited for, featuring calls from listeners with their thoughts!

Becca: Game of Thrones (Books by George R R Martin), Where’d You Go Bernadette (Book by Maria Semple), Famous In Love (Book by Rebecca Serle), This Is Where I Leave You (Book by Jonathan Tropper)
