Steve Martin, The New York art world, Ice Cube, and 90s gangsta rap Pokemon; what do they have in common? This episode is what!
"An Object of Beauty" may just be the single greatest book in the history of books that aren't listed as great books. Is that a confusing exaggeration? Yes, maybe, you tell me. In this episode, you'll get the low down on Steve Martin, his novel, and how Jesus felt about having a crucified figurine of himself submerged in urine, and so much more. Listen for the funny, stay for the accidental knowledge gain.

A special thanks to Diedrich Bader for making this episode possible.
