Thug Book Club
About This Show
Tired of the same-old serious book analysis in podcasts? Well, we were.
To solve this, Ryan and Callum started Thug Book Club. A podcast that gets literature 'lit' and puts the 'ok' into books. Every fortnight, the team releases an episode on a book, it can be old, new, classic or not, anything is up for discussion.
Expect foul-language and spoilers, but don't worry if you haven't read the novel, we've done it for you.

#031 The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood
Ryan and Callum have been on a spiritual journey through the deepest crevices of our almighty canon, and after about a month they’ve emerged on the other side in total agreement on one key issue: NO MORE FUNNY BOOK SHOW.They’re afraid to say dear listeners that the time of the goof is over. And the best way to kick humour to the curb is to look at a book that’s technically impossible to poke fun at.Margaret Atwood’s distressing slice of dystopia is a good enough kick starter for you all to realise that light-hearted approaches to literature are just not on. Nada. No more. From here on in it’s deconstructive analysis after deconstructive analysis of how these authors were right all along and that millennial society is doomed to fail.If you have a problem with any of then do tweet them @ThugBookClub – they could do with the social coverage.
