Show Notes

Hello, Should-heads! This is the most dramatic podcast episode--EVER. Three hosts. Many books. Only one episode. Who. Will. SURVIVE?

OK, sorry, I can't keep that going. We're here to talk about reality TV and the books it's spawned. We also discuss the shows we love (current and past) and what reality shows we would like to go on.
