Culture

We're a podcast dedicated to bringing you the best of non-fiction. We read and review books so you don't have to (if you don't want to). Take us anywhere; learn everywhere. Every week, we review and discuss a new nonfiction book. From history to psychology, from technology to philosophy, from Chile to China: we cover it all. Our philosophy is simple: important ideas deserve intelligent discussion, and that shouldn't be left only to the experts.
