100 — The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

It’s episode one hundred (!) so we knew we had to go big, and it certainly doesn’t get much bigger than six hundred pages of New York Times best-seller (nor do podcast episodes get much longer than this one). As the saying goes, “If the tome’s got girth, IDEOTVPod brings the mirth!”

PowerBooks, rooms that are locked (until they aren’t), repetition, google searches, a dodgy translation of a likely unedited text, repetition, sex-positive male feminism, superpowers based on not-great understandings of people on the spectrum — we know, we know, it’s hard to believe six hundred short pages could contain all of this, but…these pages contain those things. Also other things. Some good things (probably) and a tall mess of bad ones. Slap a little sunscreen on your tattoos, watch out for snipers when you go jogging, and try really hard to avoid offending any vengeful hackers.
