Episode 23

Magic by GK Chesterton

Published on: 13th April, 2021

"I shall deliberately destroy your credit as an essayist, as a journalist, as a critic, as a Liberal, as everything that offers your laziness as a refuge, until starvation and shame drive you to serious dramatic parturition. I shall repeat my public challenge to you; vaunt my superiority; insult your corpulence; torture Belloc; if necessary, call on you and steal your wife’s affections by intellectual and athletic displays, until you contribute something to British drama."

--George Bernard Shaw to GK Chesterton in a March 1908 letter. The brothers also think about doing a hate read episode on Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One.
