Happy Valentine’s week, listeners! In honor of all things love, we’ve picked something a little dreamy and romantic for Episode 34 — Natalie Babitt’s 1975 novel, Tuck Everlasting. Tune in to hear us talk symbolism, Alexis Bledel, the creepy child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and the trouble with first impressions. We also dive into the pros and cons of immortal life and debate the nature of the relationship between shy, ten-year-old Winnie and teenage heartthrob Jesse Tuck.
