BONUS EPISODE: Best of 2015 and Looking Forward to 2016
Yeah, so, if y’all hadn’t noticed, we’ve lagged a bit in getting new episodes posted this year. We blame life. To make up for being assholes, here’s ANOTHER bonus episode to keep you occupied until our next real episode posts. Which will be soon. Like, it’s been recorded, we’re just editing, and it should be ready in, like, a week. Get psyched.
You can also stream the episode on iTunes and Stitcher. Find us on Tumblr at drunkbooksellers.tumblr.com, and follow us on Twitter at @drunkbookseller for updates, book recs, and general bookish shenanigans.
Check out our show notes, below.
