Reading Envy 098: Just a Bunch of Stuff that Happened

Jenny sits down to talk to Dr. Bryan Bibb, an associate professor of religion at the university where she works. We talk about horror and religion, mythology and ... baseball? Well. Jenny likes to have guests who read in genres not frequently featured on Reading Envy.

Warning: this episode is a bit longer than the average episode, and there may be triggers for sexual abuse and spiders.
