Episode 30: Hater Studies

Alice Bolin returns to the show to talk with Ed and John about nail art and other handicrafts, the dangers of flirting with nerdy boys, when not to help a girl who has fallen on the sidewalk, having librarians for parents, pressure cooking, and how to properly dislike things. Follow links to John's detractor at the Chicago Tribune, the nail polish of Pretty Little Liars, James Wood's review of the Rachel Kushner book, Good Eats with Alton Brown, and the new novel from Urban Waite. We apologize for the crackling on John's track, no idea how that happened. It didn't sound that way at the time.
