In our final full ep of the Meryl Season™ we follow Our Lady of the Pod to Monterey, CA, where she’s doing the most on Big Little Lies. But before we get there we discuss “Chick Lit” (or should we say "beach reads"?) and do a quick stopover in Australia to visit the works and (extremely boring) life of Liane Moriarty.
