The Illiad | Homer

Awhile back we created fantasy football teams with authors, we put a lot of thought and effort into this silly idea and we enjoyed it so much that we are back for baseball. Tonight, learn how much Matt loves this concept. Would he abandon everything and create fake author baseball teams all over the country? Maybe. We hope you make your own team and nerd out on this ridiculous idea. Enjoy!

We just released our interview with the author of The New Manifesto, Sam Ernst! It was a fun and wide ranging conversation. I can also highly recommend the novel. It's literary fiction that is actually engaging. Oh, and there's a choose your own adventure section at the end!

Another month means picking another book club selection. We decided to do something slightly different this month, we nominated all non-fiction books. A varied and interesting group of books were nominated and we think we ended on a very interesting selection. Of course, we discussed all things other than books including Xavier University, starting a farm, and more! Enjoy!

Just released our Game of Kings episode! It was a very rich and complex novel and it frankly took me until the very end to figure out just what was going on, but it was also well worth the effort and I hear that the series just keeps getting better and better. Tune in to hear our thoughts!

It was fun to talk about mimetic rivalry on our latest episode. The idea that people don't really desire what they think they desire, but rather what they see others (whom they admire/envy) desiring. It's a fascinating concept and the key to understanding this novel.

Really pulling out all the stops for our Red and the Black episode. Lot going on in that book. Gonna be a long episode. But good too! Don't worry

bibliothecarivs It's interesting how classic art is used and reused for book covers. That self-portrait of Jacques-Louis David will always take me back to the Penguin Classics edition of The Count of Monte Cristo that I read nearly 20 years ago. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/142047897117-0-1/s-l1000.jpg 3mo

Just released our Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy episode. It's a very complex and subtle book and le Carre kind of just pushes the reader into the deep end, and you do have to do your share of the work, figuring out what's going. Still, it's very enjoyable for all that. Tune in to hear us discuss both the book and movie versions!

I hope everyone had a magical Christmas. Just wanted to pop on and let you know that we just released our Die Hard episode over on Patreon. We do address the “is it a Christmas movie or not“ controversy but we don't get too caught up in it. Mostly we discuss the film and story structure and the nature of the holidays and Alexis de Tocqueville and whatnot. It's good stuff! Check it out.
