Deep conversations about art

Debating life and death of art, rise and fall of heroes and trying to answer the question whether the material is of substance and worth reading. The setting is a mysterious place with deeper personal reflections on the writings and their place in life. Very enjoyable!

I like it when they curse

A podcast built around the idea of discussing classic literature's relevance in our modern lives, though not necessarily aimed at the ivory tower of academia. It picks apart literature as art, as entertainment, as something that's meant to be accessible and chewed upon by all. The listener can also subscribe to B.O.S.S. and receive invitations for the next reading selections ahead of time, thus giving it a truly inclusive podcast-as-bookclub / bookclub-as podcast conversational feel.

If Drivetime Radio Makes Your Soul Die

This is the antitoxin. Smart conversation, differing perspectives in the room, and a very eclectic set of books covered. It's your book club with nerdy comrades where you never get in trouble for not having read the book beforehand.
