Bookbabble Episode 13: Jason vs Dracula!

Recorded 16 July 2008

Babblers: Gem, Bjorn, Donny

Synopsis:
To commemorate Episode 13, the babblers made horror and superstition as a theme for today’s show.  Didn’t eventually talk about superstition, but plenty of horror movie talk, horror-related reads and some recommendations.  Also, terrifying developments on Nicole Ritchie’s new book, Bjorn’s thoughts on the terrifying Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris, and is there such a thing as a soul?

Special Note: Look up the reference to The Big Lebowski yourself!
