Introducing The Reading Envy Podcast!
Jenny Colvin and I (Scott Danielson) were talking about books one day, and decided there was room for another podcast. We decided that the podcast would come out once a month, and that we’d talk about what whatever we read the month prior. To limit the length of the podcast, we decided that picking three books each would be reasonable.
We also decided that the podcast needed to include guests, and that we’d go for a light conversation like you’d have in a cafe or a pub with friends. All books are fair game.
The latest episode (#2) is posted, and our guest is Bryan Alexander. Give it a listen! We hope you enjoy it.
READING ENVY 002: RETURN OF THE EUTHANIZED BOOK
Bryan brought three books along for discussion:
- The Proteus Paradox by Nick Yee
- Pivotal Decades: The United States, 1900-1920 by John Milton Cooper Jr.
- Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon
Scott talked about:
- The Zimmerman Telegram by Barbara W. Tuchman
- Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections and Other Obsessions by Guillermo del Toro
- What Makes This Book So Great by Jo Walton
And Jenny focused on:
- Her Smoke Rose Up Forever by James Tiptree, Jr.
- The Pale King by David Foster Wallace
- The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby (see also “Stuff I’ve Been Reading” on The Believer)
