J.D. Salinger captured the angst of his age. Unfortunately, he created a whole new angst for generations of high schoolers that came after. Just like Mrs. Randolph did when I was in 12th grade, the fans forced us to read Catcher in the Rye.
You'd think reading a good book would disrupt the normal flow of this podcast, but it really doesn't. Alex finds something not to like and picks fights with the guest. Chris and Ezra are funny and smart but nobody can remember which is which. A guest who is smart is forced to discuss taints. It's really a very standard episode, just with a better text book.
