The Battle of the Trolls
38 min

Sarah and Caroline lay out a thrilling timeline of the beleaguered app’s final days, and the internal battle between Jeremy’s hardcore fans and the internet trolls who wanted nothing more than to destroy the app. Why did trolls flood the app with fake celebrity accounts, ranging from beloved character actor Richard Kind to accused murderer OJ Simpson? And why was ironic internet comedy too strong a foe for Jeremy Renner to vanquish?

2: Volodya Takes America
Vladimir Nabokov is your favorite author? Name five of his short stories written in Berlin in the 1930s. This week we look into how the author of Lolita's attempts at writing around the book's themes pre-dated his masterwork by several decades, the endless saga of getting Lolita published, some of the story’s earliest critical misinterpretations and the life of one of the 20th century’s best-regarded authors. Jamie speaks with Nabokovian Dana Dragunoiu and Nabokov's all-time biographer Brian Boyd. Featuring the voices of Aziz Vora as Humbert Humbert, Robert Evans as Vladimir Nabokov, additional voice work from Anna Hossnieh, Shereen Lani-Younes, Grace Thomas, Isaac Taylor, and Miles Gray.
