Ep 456 - The Fat Woman Next Door is Pregnant, by Michel Tremblay

It's time to read a prominent work by a preeminent Canadian (specifically Québécois) author! Join us in Montreal in 1942 and meet a family with lots of problems but lots of heart.

Tremblay's known for insightful and whimsical character work, so it's fitting that we spend the bulk of the episode delving into the novel's deep roster of memorable characters. Also Canadian history is pretty interesting!

Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
