In a rather harrowing episode, Grant defends the work of Kurt Vonnegut (one of his favorite authors) against an onslaught of criticism from the remainder of the panel. In the face of some difficult questions regarding genre, complaints of commonly employed narrative conventions, and the suggestion that perhaps Slaughterhouse-Five has earned the Vonnegut canon more notoriety than it possibly deserves, Grant remains steadfast and unwavering. No one was injured (physically) during the recording of this podcast.
