Greetings all ye lovers of Scrawl!
After some listener feedback about our famous segment “Snookie’s Corner,” we thought to ourselves why not give our beloved fans what they want and dedicate an entire show to Snookie’s Corner!
Mark, Tom, and Robert picked three of our best books yet. We explore sexuality and relationships with men in Gia Spumanti’s life, the character in Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi’s Gorilla Beach. Ethan Hawke’s The Hottest State offers us some great discussion about reliability in your narrator, as well as the narrator’s voice and tone. And finally, things get weird, for Tom at least (which weirds out Robert and Mark), in our discussion of a young teens trip through puberty and sexuality in Pamela Anderson’s Star.
We also read some Tweets from Indie Hulk, play some awesome music, and close out by talking about Michael Showalter’s “The Apartment,” which offers us some great insights into how to avoid sounding like a young, inexperienced writer.
Thank you all for a great year and we will see you in the fall. From Scrawl, sayonara and have a great summer!
