Trigger warning this week. There is a discussion about abuse as it comes up in the book this week. If you are a victim of abuse or you know someone who needs help, please to to RAINN or to Four in One to get the help and services you need.

This week, Tony is joined by the Reface master himself, Mr. Blake Byles.

Blake brought with him his favorite Blanket as he and Tony talk about Craig Thompson’s award winning, auto-biographical masterpiece, Blankets.
