In this edition of Microwave Cooking for One in Space, we ascend with our arsenal of 200 microwaves. We're gonna' cook Mars just right. We read the original Moon People four years ago in Episode 14. Thank you to listener Daniel Canady for this recommendation. Content Warnings are light this week - just some mild sex and violence in addition to our usual barnyard language.
When D & Ken listened to 30 seconds of our podcast and told us we were good, we immediately invited them onto our show as guests and then got podcast married. Our ghost moms warned us to, "Beware the Old-Stuff-Weirdos," but there's no way that refers to the Antiques Freaks. D calls in their Patron debt and forces us to read Crimson Peak. We also watched Crimson Peak for Patrons. Paris has already seen Crimson Peak once before and hated it. After a week steeped in Crimson Peak, Paris has the equivalent of 4 beers lined up for this recording because she's had enough of this damned film and its book counterpart. Content Warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, we discuss ghosts, gore, blood, sex, and incest.
Neither of us over at TBC are into "bizarro" fiction, but today we discover that this corner of literature exists and it sure lives up to its moniker.  The weirdest and creepiest thing about this episode is that...well, there were actually redeeming qualities about this book. Yes - a book called The Haunted Vagina wasn't the worst thing we've ever read. The author somehow managed to create believable characters in a very unbelievable world. Content Warnings: Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. In addition to our usual barnyard language, we’ve got: graphic sex, macabre things happening in conjunction with that sex, and extreme body horror (including vore). Thank you to Carol for recommending this one!
It's October, so this episode is the first in our series of spooky books in honor of the season. After a long day of stocking up on fun size candy bars, putting together a cool costume, and decorating your yard with fake spiderwebs, you're just dying to curl up with a Halloween-themed mystery that stars a living skeleton, right?...right?...sure. This book was recommended by friend-of-the-show, Kristina! Thanks so much for recommending this and patiently waiting for us to read it for 2 years. The book itself is pretty wholesome, but we've got some Content Warnings for you anyhow. In addition to our classic TBC barnyard language, we’ll be discussing bones, murder, skeletons, and online bullying and we'll briefly touch upon (1) a statement involving racial prejudice, (2) the use of the word 'handicap', & (3) suicide.  
Another week, another screenplay disguised as a book. This one is a real Russian nesting doll of poor choices. Thanks to Bob from Books, Beards, & Booze for recommending this one to us!  Content Warnings: blood, death, fights between women, gore, injury, & misogyny.
Our Patron Jensina chose this book as their once-per-year reward! Check out our Patreon here to get this and other rewards for yourself. In addition to our usual barnyard language, Content Warnings this week include: generalized violence, guns, military stuff, murder, and some brief jokes with sexual themes. Chris and Paris become Blind Date and Merlot to fight a terrible book from another galaxy! This one made us feel like we were reading a knock-off G.I. Joe novel at a foreign airport bookstore. Our ultimate judgment is that this should've been pitched to The Asylum rather than being published in book form. We've also got some falafel talk, unsettling questions about eagles, and we announce potential options for the next book.
Someone cast Meteor on Chris's computer and this episode and the associated bonus Patreon content was almost lost. Luckily, his back-up Lifestream kicked in and saved the files, but not without sacrificing the computer itself to do so. Chris's brother Adam joins us as a guest today. Oops! When Paris says "Steel Magnolias" she actually means the movie "Magnolia".
GET YOUR PINKLE JINXXXXXXED!!! This book came to our attention through an anonymous recommendation. Thank you, anonymous person, and we hope you enjoy this episode.
If you haven't listened to Episode 11 - Maradonia and the Seven Bridges by Gloria Tesch and Episode 62 - Maradonia and the Escape from the Underworld (Book 2 of the Maradonia Saga/Series) by Gloria Tesch you can do that for more background info and to understand how we got here. However, it's definitely not necessary. This book was chosen by our patron Dari as part of her Patreon reward. If you, too, would like to force us to read a book, head over to our Patreon and select either the $5 or $10/month tier. Our commentary on the Maradonia movie is available on our Patreon at those tiers as well if you need even more Maradonia content. terriblebookclub.com Terrible Book Club Patreon
If you haven't listened to Episode 11 - Maradonia and the Seven Bridges by Gloria Tesch, you should do that for more background info and to understand how we got here. This episode is for Robert (Bobby) Kennedy, who rescued Episode 11 when we lost most of our first season of episodes. We know he wanted us to read the second book in the series, so here it is, at long last. July 2019 is the Month of Maradonia here at TBC. Our next episode will feature Book 3 in the Maradonia Saga - The Gold of Ophir, which also happens to be a patron's choice episode. Our commentary on the Maradonia movie is already available for patrons but we're going to add more Maradonia-themed content to our Patreon this month! terriblebookclub.com Terrible Book Club Patreon
