LISTEN TO THE PODCAST:
Welcome back! The B.O.S.S. Podcast returns! As we gear up for Sinclair Lewis' Babbitt, we open up a forgotten time capsule to read about the rise of white collar work at the beginning of the 20th Century, a world looking to sell you on pep! vim! zip! and zing! but ultimately dreary. Nothing really changes. On this shortened episode, and more so than usual, Nick guides Nathan and David through the stories "Snappy Display" and "Way I See It."
ALSO! We are happy to annouce the beginnings of B.O.S.S. Underground Press and our first release: PWR VOL written by our very own Nick Scandy, illustrated by Aaron Zonka, and scored by mini and the Bear.

Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) was the first American to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. His most popular novels are Main Street, Babbitt, Elmer Gantry, and It Can't Happen Here. Like many writers, he drank himself to death.
