081 — I’m with the Band (w/ Mara Wilson)

For Mothers’ Day, the mother of all hanging-out-with-the-band books, I’m with the Band, brought to us by star of page, screen, and earbud, Mara Wilson! It’s the book that ties together pretty much every trashy rock book we’ve done. Ties into a big, skeevy bundle, suitable for the landfill, incinerator, or truck stop book shelf.

Lizard kings, heavy metal wizards, iron butterflies, this one’s got it all! Including crabs. 🙁

Grab your all-access pass for fun, and hop on board the rock and roll train, bound for … somewhere in California, I guess? The ’70s? Backstage? Anyways, whereever we’re going, you won’t need … robes. Get comfortable, because it’s about to get pretty … intimate. Turn the incense up to 10, set lights to “seduction” and crank the tunes loud enough to cover the sounds of furry boning. And then listen to this podcast!
