This is the book podcast everyone's talking about. Bookable features established authors and emerging talent in conversation with host and author Amanda Stern, perhaps best known for creating the Happy Ending Music & Reading Series at New York's famous Joe's Pub and Symphony Space.
With an immersive sound experience designed around each episode, Bookable takes you on an audio exploration of a book—usually new, sometimes classic and occasionally obscure but always worth knowing about.

Keep Your Politics Out of This
Really? You can’t keep your politics out of the podcast?
Very interesting and perfect teasers that get you to want to read the books. Are the books chosen because most of the relationships are non traditional? If so please sprinkle in some traditional relationships or by being diverse you may become exclusionary.
