A good book and a good bourbon go hand in hand, especially when you have both in your hand right now. Join Chris Reed in this "book club of a podcast" as he discusses favorite books, the lines that stay with us, and the bourbons everyone should try.
The Road and Old Crow
The Road has been known to mess with a reader's mind, and this time is no exception. Join Chris as he talks through the thoughts left behind by the book and seeks salvation in a bottle from the bottom shelf. Cheers.
Where All Light Tends to Go and an Early Times BiB
Light tends to go where it wants. We can try to hide from it, maybe even lose our accents in an attempt to avoid it, but good luck with that. Let's talk about feeling trapped, coming up for air and, in turn, being the air for those who need it. Also, Early Times BiB is legit. Cheers.
Chapter 21: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
Do we care about too much or do we care too much about the wrong things? It's time to talk about those possibilities, going to work angry, being part of the problem, finding a personal solution, and bourbon. Always bourbon. Enjoy.
Chapter 20: To Kill a Mockingbird
The court of public opinion, nostalgia, and changing hearts and minds. Join Chris to discuss all those things in this episode of Book and Bourbon as he takes a fresh look at To Kill a Mockingbird. Grab your bottle of Blanton’s, too. If you can find it, that is.
Chapter 19: Hannah Coulter
What does the phrase "making a living" mean to you? On this episode of the Book and Bourbon podcast, Chris wonders aloud about that saying, the slippery slope of expectations, and his favorite fictional Kentucky town. Time to open that bottle of Stagg Jr. if you have it.
Chapter 18: 1984
1984 might have recently become a fashionable read, but this episode of Book and Bourbon suggests that it never went out of style. Join Chris to talk about escapes, language, love and hope, and find out why standing in line for a bourbon turned out to be a good idea.

Well-done, eloquent and simple.
The editing and composition are a delight, like taking a long, slow drink of your favorite dram. I thought it would be far more frenetic and comprehensive. Instead, it’s a contemplative response to what Chris has read, accompanied by his (& my!) favorite drink.
I am glad he has kept at it. 🙏🏼
You had me at hello.
Chris, I love the podcast, keep up the great work. I would have to say Chapter 4: High Fidelity and the first sentence is probably my fav so far.
"Nothing…that’s the dreaded answer to the dreaded question, what are you thinking about right now?"
This is the gold. Two fantastic worlds colliding like peanut butter meeting chocolate. Between Book and Bourbon I probably do more than I should of one, and less than I should of the other, but this podcast inspires me to do both better. This is gold I say.
