Best Book Ever

Nov 9, 2020

Why is this the first time someone chose Jane Austen for this podcast? Isn’t Pride and Prejudice supposed to be everyone’s favorite book? Are people embarrassed to admit how much they love it? Jaimie Morimoto and I delve into the “Pumpkin Spice” popularity of this novel. In addition to that, we serve up a hot take on Mr. Bennet’s parenting style and some redemption for Lydia.
