BiblioFiles Episode #18: Justice and Judgment

Part of what it means to be human is that we all inherently desire justice. Everyone should get what they deserve, and it's bothersome when that often isn't the case. But do we really want what we deserve? Authors have been considering this question since ancient times, and in today's podcast, with Ian and Emily out on vacation, Adam, Missy, and Megan gather to talk about this theme that has been popping up so often in the books they've been reading recently.
