O.J. Simpson

4/14/2024
OJ Simpson died, which depending on how you felt about him is a good or bad thing. Regardless, he was a really weird dude and was responsible for the biggest media circus anyone had ever seen up to that point during a formative time in our teen years. This week we look back on a bad guy’s weird life. For weekly episodes of Books: The Podcast and much, much more check out the TCGTE Patreon! Like the show?

Eclipses

4/7/2024
Everybody's losing their minds about the solar eclipse that's happening this week, super excited that the sun will be blocked by the moon for a few minutes.
