The podcast about the most groan-worthy, enraging, and sh*t characters in lit. Join host Emily Edwards and a guest for a weekly "book club" discussion on every book you wanted to destroy in English class, but couldn't. Classic literature of Europe and the Americas– everything form mythology to Victorian epics to the modernists– is hard to get through, and each week, we take on a frequently assigned book to talk about all of its highs and lows. These are the Fuckbois of Literature.
 
Print Run is a podcast created and hosted by Laura Zats and Erik Hane. Its aim is simple: to have the conversations surrounding the book and writing industries that too often are glossed over by conventional wisdom, institutional optimism, and false seriousness. We’re book people, and we want to examine the questions that lie at the heart of that life: why do books, specifically, matter? In a digital world, what cultural ground does book publishing still occupy? Whether it’s trends in the qu ...

Studios, IDW, Aftershock, Valiant, and more. The aim is to have a fun time, some laughs, but to also really understand what makes comic books work and what doesn’t, and trying to under ...
 
Sick of feeling guilty about the books you should be reading, but aren’t? Annoyed that the books you read don’t seem to “count” as literature?

We talk to authors, fans and cultural critics about what makes chick-lit tick, and investigate why it’s so often overlooked.

A group of smart, funny friends meet together every week to talk about the book they’re reading—a book that just so happens to be incredibly buzzy and in the zeitgeist because it has an adaptation coming up on the big screen or via streaming.

Hosted by Dana Schwartz, Jennifer Wright, Korama Danquah, Melissa Hunter, and Tien Tran. New episodes every Monday!
