Episode Three is dedicated to Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises. In this episode we discuss the definition of Toxic Masculinity and tank our listening records for picking an uncomfortable buzzword. We also discuss how this novel ended up being the ultimate tell-all book while hiding behind a novel.
If you’d like to drink along:
Death in the Afternoon
- Sugar cube so you don’t die of bitterness
Place a sugar cube in the bottom of a champagne flute. Add preferred amount of absinthe. Top with champagne. Drink and find yourself wanting to fight a bear and write a novel about every bad thing your friends have ever done.
