The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao earned Junot Díaz a Pulitzer Prize in 2008, and it remains one of the most highly regarded novels of our young 21st century.

Oscar Wao is a Dominican lad who loves geekery almost as much as he loves women. The only trouble is: he just can't get any.

Tune in for a discussion of (toxic) masculinity, nerd alerts, and the Dominican Republic under the rule of El Jefe.
