Show Notes Chapter Markers

Today we cover The Grapes of Wrath, which Kellen loved and Dave hated. ‘Cause we think the best art happens when the two creators have COMPLETELY different visions. (Remember in Star Wars how J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson just undid every creative decision the other one made, like two guys doing bad improv where they do NOT listen to each other at all? It was glorious.) Dave gives a good argument for why The Grapes of Wrath is boring, and Kellen just likes books about dirt I guess. (This description was written by anonymous...)
