Our listeners never fail to blow our minds. Listener TrendyMoron wrote to us about Aphantasia, a condition where you cannot voluntarily visualize imagery. Are any of you familiar with this condition? Do you have it yourself? How do you experience books? WE NEED TO KNOW. This topic inspired some great conversation for this episode, and for that, we owe you our gratitude, TrendyMoron.

We owe you a deep, sincere apology. The last few months have proven incredibly busy, and as such posting (and recording) hasn't happened the way you deserve. We're here to try to make it up to you, starting with finally posting a new episode.

In the long-awaited one hundred and sixteenth episode, we discuss magazines. Do you still read print magazines? Do you think there's still a need for them? Do you think "zines" count? Listen the episode and sound off!

Have you ever been so excited for a book that the disappointment was inevitable? A listener asks us when the last time we were let down by our literary expectations, and you can imagine that we have THOUGHTS. Enjoy!

Listener John wonders how books have influenced your life - for instance, he felt braver wearing glasses as a child after reading Harry Potter. Have books ever inspired or influenced you to make changes in your own life? We cover lots of topics, but mostly we find that books make us hungry...

Zane and Sean luxuriate in a Josh-free week, and discuss the one topic Josh can't contribute to: reading! We talk about everything we love and don't love about the act of reading, and give Josh a hard time. Make sure to listen to the end when a special guest shows up!

Holy crap, this week has been long. Almost like it's taken....months? Who knows. As ever, I BLAME JOSH. This week we're discussing bad reading habits courtesy of an email by listener Luke. We also get pulled for copyright infringement and celebrate Sean's one hundred and eleventh birthday.

This week we're talking about everyone's favorite subject: Jake! I mean Josh! Did you know that Josh went to England recently? Well, somehow we found a way to turn that into an entire episode. Special shout out to reptile anatomy, which weirdly plays an important part in our discussion this week. Good times ahead, Crack Heads. Good. Times.

How do you organize your books? Turns out it's a pretty personal, and occasionally inexplicable thing. Thanks to listener Aimee (AGAIN!?) for this surprisingly complex topic. Check it out and let us know how you organize your books and thoughts.

Aaaaaand we're back! Blame Zane...

But take this episode as our apology. Super Jesus comes through with a brilliant topic suggestion: what books would you NOT want to be adapted to film or television? This might shock you, but we have OPINIONS on this topic. Get ready to get all fired up with us, listeners. It's episode 108!

July 06, 2018 12:07 PM PDT

Sorry for the brief hiatus, listeners. But like always, we're back! We discuss an oft-submitted topic suggestion: audio books! Many of you have asked us to delve into this subject, and we graciously oblige. Make sure you listen all the way through because we're also bringing back the Special Reading!

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.
