Kate and Laura on the books that get you talking. Every episode we sit down to chat about the books read most recently by our book clubs. What did we make of them? Did they spark debate? And whether we loved them or loathed them, we always try to answer the big question: were they great book club books?

“Teaching my cat to read” is the ‘very serious’ book review podcast. During lockdown, we made it a mission to try to read more books, and talk about them in our own virtual book club.

Join us, as we navigate through both classic and modern literature, discussing topics such as ‘who would win in a fight’ and ‘which is the best movie adaptation’ and ‘what rating wou ...
 
A book club where we (those who identify as men and those who want to understand men better) review great works of literature and discuss what they have to say about masculine archetypes. We are two life-long friends, one straight, one gay, a writer, and a doctor of computer science and philosophy, who have vastly different ideas of what it means to be a man. We’re here to take a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly and to grow along the way.
