Alternative title: Bring back Fanny! We want Fanny!

This week on How Novel! the girls discuss the one place PC culture really has gone too far-revised copies of Enid Blyton's The Enchanted Wood in which literary simps changed Fanny's name to Frannie!
But before they can talk magic trees, A&C have a podcast therapy chat about the American presidential election, children who speak in memes and Alex's mortal enemy-a 39-year-old vitamin salesman who can't stop comparing himself to a wolf. 

They eventually get around to Blyton, whose 1939 novel hasn't exactly 'aged well.' But not before Alex outs herself as a Pisces who blames old people for not dying fast enough and Claire admits being a communist poetry hater who likes ads on Instagram.

Moonface isn't a good name for a character.
