Today on No Bad Ideas: 90's fads! Grief counseling! Erotica! Devious librarians! And special guest star, Sarah Rhea Werner!
First, Zach brings us the story of a 90's fad that, when it died, had its very own wake, funeral, and memorial service. The team turns it into a heartwarming period dramedy about families, grieving, and confronting our own mortality through parenthood. Then, Sarah presents an article about a town that made the news when a book swap box got a little too saucy. The squad turns it into a film about a library trying to get funding through erotica and scandal! Then, we have a short discussion with Sarah Werner about creating during the pandemic and the virtues of teaching others the craft of writing.
All of that, plus: disgruntled priests, digital life, holographic spouses, cesspits, and insatiable hungers.
