Hey drunky babies, it’s time for episode 12! This week, we read The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.
Oooh goodness we have much to discuss this time around, and some of those things are: a shout out to St. George Spirits for keeping us inebriated; our fancy fancy English major use of literature terms like “unreliable narrator,” The Turn of the Screw, and “frame narrative;” Ashley’s hatred of travel journalists (jaykay); the stigma of mental health issues and questions regarding unreliable narrators used to move forward plot lines; a cry for not only diverse emojis, but also the crossed-finger emoji; and a buncha bodies we’re going to dump overboard on our next cruise. Suffice it to say, you are in for a treat, dear listener.
Olivia drinks: Andre and raspberry liqueur
Ashley drinks: gin and tonic

OMG drunkers, you do not know how frustrating the process of recording episode 11 was. Apparently the universe was not pleased with us, so Skype kicked us out of our conversation approximately one thousand times. So, when Olivia’s voice starts sounding weird near the end, that’s because we had to switch to Facetime. Wah-wah.
However, we made it through and it was worth it! This week, we read Threadbare: Clothes, Sex, and Trafficking by Anne Elizabeth Moore and the Ladydrawers. This graphic novel was illuminating, to say the least!
This episode, we discussed: the fact that neither of us are the best at reading graphic novels (it takes practice!), how this book was similar in structure to Modern Romance, how very very complicated the sex trade is, and the monumental importance of making ethical clothes choices. Listen up, bbs!
Olivia drinks: maker’s mark, lingonberry syrup, and water (I don’t know what that is, either)
Ashley drinks: gin and tonic (with lime essential oil, hayyyo!)
