Thanks to awesome listener Aimee for this week's great topic. We discuss merchandise for the things that we love, and our desperate need to own it. We just need it, okay? We can stop anytime we want. Quit judging us!

Sorry for the brief hiatus, dear readers! Life gets in the way, but we're here now. This week we get super topical, and discuss true crime. Inspired by Michelle McNamara's help in finding the Golden State Killer, we talk about true crime's influence in the real world.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! We made it to 100 episodes, and we couldn't have done it without your patronage and the help of a German economics podcast. For this very special episode we take a look back at our history, and reminisce about the good times and the butthurt. Thanks for sticking with us! We love you.

What would we do without our precious listeners? This week we discuss a topic submitted by Michael. (Thank you, dude, for giving us something to talk about!) We discuss experiencing physical sensations from well-written books, and Zane loses her mind thanks to a headache.

Sometimes when we need topic ideas, we take to googling. We're only human, after all. This week's googling unearthed a surprisingly deep topic of conversation. Do readers have the right to critique the work of a writer, even though they can't claim ownership over the work? Also we ate too much food before we recorded and...there's a lot of burping. Sorry.

Are you capable of multi-tasking while reading? Listener Nick comes through yet again with a great topic for us. He asks us if we can listen to music or podcasts while reading, and we talk about our abilities to juggle. PLUS we discover that somehow Sean has never seen Coneheads. WTF.

Listener Nicholas sends us into uncharted territory with this great topic suggestion: the wide world of sports! We discuss our experience with sports related literature, Josh goes off the TMI deep end, and Zane wins the show. Six week streak, keep the faith alive!

Well, the honeymoon is over. This week's episode is fraught with tension. We field a great topic suggestion from listener John Glessner about the future of the book industry. Can it survive the collapse of the corporate book store, or will it go the way of the music industry? We get grumpy and argumentative, and Zane confesses a deep dark secret.

The gang is back again this week (yes, THIS WEEK) to talk about fantasy fiction. No, not that THAT fantasy fiction. The fiction where we fantasize about who writes our story. What author would you choose to tell the story of your life? We discuss our choices, and Josh brags about how famous his friends are.

Up a day early to help soothe your snow day woes! This week we're discussing the recent Terry Goodkind scandal, and why literature is a collaborative art that requires teamwork.

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
