B&B Ep 123 TODD ROBINSON - IRON MAN 3 SHOWDOWN

January 15th, 2015

Some things in life will always remain unexplained - how do baby sea turtles find their families after hatching? Why do people buy books by James Patterson? How can anyone not like Iron Man 3?
Books and Booze can't answer all of life's questions but we teamed up with Todd Robinson to give you a glimpse of exactly the kind of person who doesn't like Iron Man 3 and discuss the Howard the Duck movie we all want to see. We also talked a little bit about Todd's magazine Thuglit, and the awards his novel The Hard Bounce did and didn't receive.
