Happy New Year! Jayne and Paula are back with another episode, this time about a quirkily titled short story anthology, Smart Ovens for Lonely People. How will this compare to the last anthology they read which underwhelmed them both? Plus, both ladies have thoughts to share on book-to-screen adaptations they've seen recently.
