372 Pages We'll Never Get Back

Mike Nelson and Conor Lastowka’s bad book podcast. I have listened and re-listened numerous times. I have only read half the books. I have Mike’s signed copy of “Lair of the White Worm.”

Modelland is killing me. Let us commiserate.


I stumbled upon 372 Pages a few months ago and absolutely loved the episodes for My Immortal and Midnight Sun. I’m a little behind, but from the Modelland episode I’ve heard, what a trainwreck of a book :joy:


I believe Modelland has surpassed (subpassed?) Bob Honey.

I don’t think it will top (bottom?) Shadow Moon. I hope nothing does.

Oh, brag: I have a copy of Mike Nelson’s Death Rat signed by Conor. So, yeah, I’m a badass.


I think Modelland has surpassed Bob Honey in pure plot “craziness”, but it doesn’t seem to 100% hate all of humanity? LOL

Yes, it may top out at 99.98%. But it sorta makes up for that with its creepy teen girl faux-intimacy (hello, Shadow Moon!).

I need to listen to the Modelland episode. I used to watch ANTM regularly about 15 years ago or so (I’m a sucker for bad reality TV), and the story of Tyra Banks’ failed MLM is worth watching deep dives about on YouTube (my favorite is from Cruel World Happy Mind). I remember hearing about this book, and I knew it was going to be awful.

Also, a bad book podcast? So up my alley. Also, to add to my list of podcasts to listen to.

I’ve been on board since pretty close to the beginning and have been a Patreon member for a few years now. It’s a great time.
