10/3/2018

8/31/2018
More
We're trying something new, where we review a book that is considered to be the author's best work. And we're calling it... We don't have a name for it yet. Greatest Hits was floated. Thoughts?

Duration:01:14:02

410 - David Duchovny interview

8/20/2018
More
Yes. You read that correctly. We got David on the phone for a little over an hour of discussion about his books, music, and a little TV chat as well. It was a delightful interview, and we're sure you're going to enjoy it. And since you've most likely already stopped reading, please enjoy.

409 - Interlude

8/13/2018
More
We're back with an interlude! This episode, Robb complains about his rental car process, and Livius complains about getting a passport photo taken. So it accidentally turned into a huge conversation where we gripe about our travels. But, it's pretty entertaining, so you should give it a listen.

Duration:01:04:40

408 - Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage

8/8/2018
More
We're back with a wicked little book to chat about. Baby Teeth has been tearing up the charts, so we decided to sink our adult teeth into it. Glad we did. We loved it, so please check out what we had to say. For our UK followers, the book is releasing under the title Bad Apple by Zoje Stage, with a release date of August 9th, so depending on when you read this, it may already be available.

405 - Interlude

7/18/2018
More
We're back with an interlude episode that started with, and largely continued with no real agenda. A truly rudderless endeavor. Probably, that's why Livius spent a lot of time talking about "Future Robb". It's actually quite entertaining, so please enjoy.

Duration:01:02:14

404 - The Brickeaters by The Residents

7/11/2018
More
Here's something different. A debut novel written by an experimental music outfit that's been chugging along for almost half a century. It's a good ol' detective book with some twists.
