Sad But Hot But Also Sad: The One You Fight For by Roni Loren, w/ Special Guest: Mr. Meg!


On this episode of Make Out Already, we discuss a beautiful book with a very heavy theme: “The One You Fight For” by Roni Loren. It’s part of the series “The Ones Who Got Away,” about a group of school shooting survivors now in their 30s. And we bring on a very special guest — Mr. Meg himself, Ben! Oh yeah, we’ve got a white guy on the podcast!

We’re going to talk about gun violence, including a personal experience with a school shooting, so if you need to sit this one out, we understand.
