Summary: Literary Hangover is a podcast, released on the first and third Saturdays of each month, in which Matt Lech and his friends chat about fiction and the historical, social, and political forces behind the creation of it and represented by it.
Matt and Alex (@Alecks_Guns) talk about the first popular "American" novel in James Fenimore Cooper's "The Spy," and how Americans have learned to view the revolution.
