Oral tradition got a little bit more ridiculous with the introduction of Fearsome Critters in Americana folklore. As we dive in, Amanda comes up with her own Roman senator names, we fall in love with a drunk cactus cat, and a reminder: You’re not a squonk. We’re proud of you.

This week, Amanda recommends Normal People by Sally Rooney.

Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about gaslighting/hazing, deforestation, colonialism, death, cultural appropriation, and depression.
