Episode six: The Chair
Show Notes

Inger, Megan, Anitra and Narelle continue their episode by episode forensic  examination of 'The Chair'. This time we're examining the last episode - The Chair.

In the last episode, unresolved sexual tension (UST) is resolved (sort of). Punishment is delivered (kind of) and, as is the way in almost every contemporary romance novel, every one is Happy For Now (HFN).

Warning - this episode contains Megan's utter disgust about The Kiss amongst other salacious details. BUT we got all our sound problems ironed out - just in time for the Last Episode.

For our fans - we know there's a few: Academics Talk About... is not done! We're having too much fun to stop and it's going to be lockdown for a while yet. As soon as we have decided what show to dissect next, we'll be back. So stay subscribed and see what happens!
