Our show reconstructs books that have been divided into thirds and assigned to three different hosts. We then recap the book in full over three episodes.
In this episode, Rob from Interrupted Tales and Parasitecology choo choo chooses to reveal where Arya's Braavosi coin ended up, introduce us to explosive car jousts, and give an insider tip on what to order at Mexican restaurants. (Just don't tell "Never on Sunday Steve.")

This week, we discussed the audiodrama Parasitecology.
From the back cover:
MARK HARDIN...The Penetrator. He'd learned how in Vietnam. Infiltrate the enemy's position, determine the plan of action and then strike swiftly, taking out as many key men as possible, wreaking destruction, leaving chaos in your wake.
Now he was in Los Angeles, engaged in a new, far more sinister war. But he was fully prepared and totally committed, and bound by no rules but his own.
He is tall and slim, reflecting his unique Indian-Welsh background. His driver's license indicates his age is twenty-eight. If he seems a bit grim, it is for good reason.
He was orphaned at four, when his parents and three brothers and sisters were killed in an automobile crash. Since then he's been mistreated, brutalized by life, injured in games (football), and wounded in combat. But he's survived. Mark Hardin is tough, a survivor. And an expert. Marksmanship, karate, aikido, and even the crossbow, are part of his arsenal.
He is a new breed of warrior--without uniform, without rank--dedicated to the American way of life, and pledged to fight anyone who seeks to destroy it. On either side of the law. That's why he's in Los Angeles. Just the beginning of a long and lonely series of brushfire wars.
