Episode 14

Axlar Björn VS Erin Gruwell

This week, Kim takes on the only serial killer ever to grace the island of Iceland. Axlar Björn: a particularly shitty shitbag who fell in love with an ax at the ripe age of fifteen, and who’s entire family sounds like they could be a design on IKEA’s new spring line. Then, Alyssa lightens the topic with the story of the amazing Erin Gruwell, the inspiration behind the 2007 movie “Freedom Writers.” She is responsible for turning the lives of underprivileged students around, and showing a lackadaisical school district that every child has potential if you show them you care. #booksarethebest #educationisimportant
