We are oh-for-two on knowing what it is we’re actually reading. This episode, we talk Kaitlyn Greenridge’s We Love You, Charlie Freeman, an eerie and uncomfortable examination of race, communication and family. Tune in for anxiety attacks, asshole chimpanzees and, as always, us mispronouncing the names of all your favs.
