Bookclub is a bi-weekly, hour-long podcast in which we discuss a different book each episode. With jokes! Come and join us!
The Lord of the Cringe
Join the Dillsbury Poboy, AC Rowdy, and T-Willikers as we continue our discussion of Stephen King's Dark Tower series with the penultimate installment, Song of Susannah. We discuss the author's regrettable decision to place himself as a character in his own magnum opus, the fact that Stephen King did 9/11, and a myriad of other topics that are all more interesting than the book.

5 out of 5 Handbooks for the Recently Deceased
Because it’s funny, serious, silly, honest, and disturbing at times (but in a good way). I love listening to the brothers banter and it gets me through the day when I don’t feel like listening to music. Each has their own unique personality and brings something different to the table. I also never feel dumb when I’m listening because they explain things for all types of listeners and don’t assume that we have read the books.
Informative, great chemistry and the occasional belly laugh.
This podcast has introduced me to books I might have missed and it has made me reevaluate books I thought I knew. The chemistry of the brothers are perhaps the show’s greatest asset. They each bring something unique to the table. It’s not easy to consistently be interesting and/or funny while talking about books but these guys pull it off. Great stuff.
Great reviews of great books.
But when are these guys going to review the ULTIMATE book? The Bible. Some call it the original Game of Thrones.
