Fire the Canon

We discuss The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. “Ol’ One Ball” Salinger. This is our second attempt at recording this episode, because the first try was depressing! Now it’s depressing AND funny, we promise. The gang intersperses Holden Caulfield’s tale with thrilling tales of their own teenage lives. Theo makes a New York joke about on par with his better Yu-Gi-Oh! joke, and Three-o is finally introduced. Topics include: the people’s producer, hot Salinger goss, easy, breezy, beautiful Darcy, Accidentally Ackley with Jacklie, professional secrets, and a fate better than death.

Content warning: discussion of bullying, suicide, self-harm, mental illness.
