A Woman of No Importance

Also, what kind of bender would you be? Do you have the thighs of an earth bender? Why are girls who claim they would be a blood bender the worst? All super important conversations we will have that have nothing to do with the book we read.

Recast! - Where the Crawdads Sing

ERECAST! Raven and Ginnye are going way out yonder this episode for their second read, “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens. This was such a good read, no wonder Reese Witherspoon picked this book for her book club! We try to keep this one spoiler clean, but it was tough! We definitely recommend reading this pick if you haven’t already. We discuss what it means to be poor, beautiful, black, and ‘swamp trash’ during the 50s - 70s, what happens when nature is doing the nurturing, and how much we FUCKING HATE CHASE ANDREWS. We probably talk about that last one a bit too much, but he is seriously the worst.

Recast! - Where the Crawdads Sing

The Bell Jar

EThe Bitches aren't complaining about a writer's two-timing butt head of a husband? That's what we call character growth! Ginnye and Raven are talking about the lyrical genius Sylvia Plath's semi-autobiographical novel, the Bell Jar. Mental health in the 1950s, the lies depression tells us, and how spookily similar Ginnye looks to Sylvia Plath are just the tip of the conversational iceberg between our hosts! You might even hear Raven's pretty spot on impression of the Tiger King. This episode has depth!
