Bernie, boys, and babies! The Book Squad husbands join us as we finally discuss the 1989 film masterpiece* “Weekend at Bernie’s.” We talk about the movie’s cult status, how the comedy works and doesn’t work, and why Terry Kiser deserves a shelf full of awards for his performance as a dead guy. Then it’s baby shower time! Susan and Justin open gifts for their baby-to-be and oooh and ahhh over all the cute things. Read along for our next Bookpisode about “Sundial” by Catriona Ward on May 16th. Then join us and special guest Susie Dumond, author of “Queerly Beloved,” for a discussion of her book, plus “I Kissed Shara Wheeler” by Casey MicQuiston on May 30th. Don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts or the podcast app of your choice!
