Love YA Like Crazy

Welcome to Love YA Like Crazy, where Carrie and Jake rant about young adult books. Beware, there are lots of spoilers and often lots of swearing!

Jan 6, 2021

For this episode, Carrie and Jake read 'Darius the Great is Not Okay' by Adib Khorram. Carrie does some Google Maps research, Jake mentions Puppetry of the Penis, and they have a brief discussion of teasplaining, while completely failing to talk about truck nuts, alas. Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening!

This episode features a clip from the early Lonely Island song 'The Heist', and a couple of brief excerpts from the 'Darius the Great is Not OK' audiobook, narrated by Michael Levi Harris.

The episode ends with a recording of 'The Lion Song' by Jake's cousin David, who recently died of COVID-19. You can hear a few of David's songs on Jake's soundcloud.
