There's those books out there that we're all supposed to read, or we begrudgingly read in school just so we can appear smart at cocktail parties. Remember cocktail parties? On this show that's one part audio book and one part podcast, we revisit some of those classics to see what we love and what don't. Each episode features a chapter from The War of the Worlds and your new favorite comedian providing all the wonderfully welcome yet disruptive commentary throughout. The education is mild but the comedy is extra spicy on this show for those who love reading and those who find it an absolute bore.
