Season 4, Episode 22: Goals for 2022 + A Special Kind of Hell

  • Current Reads: mystery and fantasy and parenting and romance and family drama, we’re running the reading gauntlet

  • Deep Dive: setting goals for 2022 in our personal, podcast, and Patreon spaces

  • Book Presses: a backlist gem and a retelling of a classic
