The pals reach deep into the canon and put one of the most esteemed novels in English literature to the cannon test.

It's another round of Canon or Cannon! This time we read Herman Melville's classic story "Bartleby, the Scrivener" and choose whether we want to keep it a required read or prefer not to. 

Canon is Cannon. The pals discuss George Orwell's 1984 and whether it's as important as everyone who hasn't read it says it is.

The pals load another classic into the cannon. Will Fences be shot into the sea or returned to the canon?

Introducing our new series Canon or Cannon, in which the pals read and discuss notable works from the Western Canon, particularly those typically assigned in high school, and determine whether they should continue in their relevance or be shot from a cannon into the sea.


For our first installment, we read William Golding's 1954 child-murder classic Lord of the Flies.
