Benji and Joe track down their 10th-grade English teacher and bring him out of retirement to talk about this John Knowles novel that he made required reading. In the process, Benji confesses to the prank that led to him getting a "Needs Improvement" citizenship grade. Life is messy, the book is beautiful, and this episode is hilariously poignant.
Do you have the courage to listen to this episode? It's' in tents. Come join the brothers as they reconnect with each other and bond over social media musings, pointless arguments with mom, how much food they used to eat, as well as the adventures of Lewis and Clark, with a personal connection to their famous excursion. Also, bear anatomy! This is our most provocative episode yet.
Why didn't Joe and Benji wait until Episode 14 to read Peter Clines' thriller titled "14"? They have no answer for that.

And the book. They talk about the book, too.
