This week, the hosts of the podcast Just Between Us, Gabe Dunn and Alison Raskin, stop in to talk about the concert-goers who keep throwing objects on stage, why everyone is in Europe right now, and the people who got stuck upside down on a roller coaster for 2 hours.

Then, The New York Times’ Alexandra Alter unpacks her story about how review-bombing on Goodreads is impacting the publishing industry. She also shares a few book recommendations of her own.

Plus, we talk to the winner of our 10th anniversary cake decorating contest, Kelly Dull! Kelly made a vanilla cake with a lemon swiss meringue buttercream filling and pink meringue icing. She included fondant decorations that encompass all of the things that she loves about Nerdette, including the iron throne from Game of Thrones, Book Club books, and Greta’s corgi Scout. “My parents are educators so reading has been such a huge part of my life” Kelly says. “It's always really special to me when I get to meet someone and tell them how much their work means to me.”
