Tired of the same-old serious book analysis in podcasts? Well, we were. To solve this, Ryan and Callum started Smug Book Club. A podcast that gets literature 'lit' and puts the 'ok' into books. Every fortnight, the team releases an episode on a book. It can be old, new, classic or not, anything is up for discussion. Expect foul-language and spoilers, but don't worry if you haven't read the novel, we've done it for you. Follow us on Twitter: @SmugBookClub
