We're reading the Wheel of Time series of fantasy novels by Robert Jordan! We read them when we were younger, but now we are wiser. Why? Because they're so much fun! Adventure, magic, battles, politics, treachery, horses, braid-pulling... these books are top flight entertainment. They're also, as the kids say these days, "problematic". We'll dig into it as we go. We read about 5 chapters every episode, and we recap the events of the story, so you don't have to read along unless you want to. ...

Kate Vlasek and Lauryn Hunter are two women in their mid-thirties who generally geek out about all things pop culture, particularly nostalgic pop culture. A spur-of-the-moment purchase of a random assortment of Baby-Sitters Club books on eBay sparked the excitement that would become Generation BSC. And what is Generation BSC? First, it’s a micro-generation Kate and Lauryn have identified with between Generation X and Millennials. This micro-generation has also been called the Oregon Trail Ge ...

About three things, we were absolutely positive. First, we were going to reread the Twilight books. Second, there was a part of us, and we didn't know how potent that part might be, that thirsted for this rereading. And third, we were unconditionally and irrevocably sure that this was a bad idea.
 
Each week, freelance writer and lifelong bookworm Alli Hoff Kosik will challenge a guest to reread a literary throwback or to experience for the first time ever a book they may have missed as a kid.

Every Tuesday, you can find us breaking down an old school read from our tween and teen days on a new episode of the show. We'll cover everything from The Baby- ...
 
In Luke 24, Jesus told two of his followers that the entire Bible was about him. Yet their reading of the Bible had not actually prepared them for Jesus. Sadly, the same thing is still happening today, even in churches. This podcast is an invitation to reread the Old Testament with Jesus in mind; to “unbind” it from the many ways it’s been misread and misapplied. I hope you’ll join me!

The Podcast That Must Not Be Named is a chapter by chapter, spoiler-free (mostly) reread podcast of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series with an engineer and a math teacher.

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed," said Hemingway. Epiphany! Your fingers scuttle to the nearest keyboard, locked, loaded, evocative and vivid language at the ready. With suave confidence you strike down on that first key. Then another. And another until you have formed your masterpiece. The joy! You reread your delicious words! But something tastes funny. "No, this isn't what I meant at all." and "What was I thinking?" and "My editor will have m ...
