David Foster Wallace was a stalker who wrote an essay about US fiction and television. Rob and Joe interrogate their relationships with this infamous writer and with literary fiction. They try to make sense of themselves as entertainment consumers and creative people. Rob unflinchingly talks about how once upon a 2013 writing took him down a rabbit hole of despair. It's really great. This conversation is earnest and sad and eventually hopeful. I, Joe, can't really do it justice in this description. That's why you should listen.
