In this not so quick quickie, Claire updates us on the scandal that is rocking the romance world, and Neil discusses Chuck Tingle’s literary critic of the whole affair: “Not Pounded By Romance Wranglers Of America Because Their New Leadership Is From The Depths Of The Endless Cosmic Void” So strap in, because things are about to get crazy! (And, spoilers, a little racist).
