Fire the Canon

We read the first six chapters of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!  The book is somehow even stranger than the famously strange film.  Come along with us and find out how that’s possible.  Jackie faces the end of childhood and BSes her way into the right answer.  Theo is put on the spot.  Rachel gets gently doxxed.  Jackie’s dog Grover makes a cameo.  Topics include: wizcraft, zards, Pokemon, Sigmund Freud, Tin Cheney and Dick Man, cyclone science, Greg Fishel, the talk, the W.C., the ship of Theseus, a 100% all-beef dog, sociopaths, Job, and a Baum attack.

Content Warning: racism, genocide, heart attacks, death, slavery
