Episode Info:

Are you a book-lover, or like, a book... *lover*? What is it about literary characters that make us so damn thirsty? Special guest Mallory Ortberg (Dear Prudence, The Toast) joins us to talk about the first loves that made us stay up past our bedtimes, the ones we sneaked under the covers and explored every inch of — literary baes. How awful and perfect (for each other and for us!) were Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester? Why was Shug Avery so magnetic? Is revenge a dish best served cold or not eaten at all? We have an exciting Thirst Sommelier, but no drabbles this week, and that's because we have a supremely hilarious reading from Mallory, in which we are dragged, cleansed and blessed.

Read Things I’ve Learned About Heterosexual Female Desire From Decades Of Reading by Mallory Ortberg, and listen to Bim & Nichole's episodes of Dear Prudence.
