Hey slanted readers! Today I am introducing you all to my voice with the very first Slanted Spines podcast!
We’re using a site called Anchor to record and post the podcast, so to listen to today’s podcast, which is in part brought to you by Tree City Records, click on this:
In this episode, my co-host Bryant and I discuss The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and we break down a few different slanted truths we found noteworthy for the podcast!

What’s your favorite part of The Great Gatsby? Did you find any slanted truths we didn’t mention? Do you think the evidence from the novel suggests that Nick has homosexual tendencies? What do you think of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda’s “love”? Does Jay really love Daisy, or just the idea of her? Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!
