Episode 56: A few favorite memoirs, a disagreement, and book reviews

In today’s episode, Curtis and Chelsey are sharing recommendations in their mutual favorite genre: memoir. Despite the fact that we both love this genre, our tastes vary wildly. We like to think that’s why you stick around here, listeners. So expect a wide range of memoirs today as we share three favorites and three to-be-read titles. 

PS: You’ll hear our podcast mascot, Penny breathing and whining on the track. She says hello, pay attention to me please. Enjoy the puppy ambience.
