Bad On Paper

Oct 26, 2022

This week we’re discussing our October Book Club Pick: When We Were Bright and Beautiful by Jillian Medoff. We talk about the theories we had while reading this book, what we did and didn’t like, our thoughts on the ending, and play two calls from listeners sharing their thoughts. 

Content Warning: In this episode, we discuss the book's plotlines surrounding sexual assault & pedophilia, so if these themes may be upsetting to you, please take care and skip this episode and join us next week.
