    Episode 42: The Count of Monte Cristo Discussion, plus revenge story book recommendations

    The Count of Monte Cristo by French author Alexandre Dumas is often ranked in the Top 100 Novels of all time. Originally published in eighteen parts from 1844 to 1846, audiences of that time experienced something akin to a gripping TV show. At work, on the street, on a daily basis people could talk of nothing else. Monte Cristo has been printed in dozens of languages and adapted into over 20 film and TV adaptations. Did we think it was an edge of your seat adventure, or just a giant bore?

    Episode 41: He Rec'd She Rec'd, recommending books with multiple perspectives and a strong sense of place for Holly and Brandon

    Today we’re recommending books for Holly and her husband Brandon. Holly enjoys historical fiction books that are a good mixture of character and plot driven, fantasy series where the setting is so strong it almost becomes a character itself, and books where the story is told from different characters’ perspectives. Brandon is just starting to become a reader and really enjoys plot driven stories, thrillers that lean towards horror, and sports. Tune in to find out which books we recommend for this bookish couple, plus what we’re currently reading.

    Episode 40: Bad Blood by John Carreyrou Discussion, plus what we love about investigative journalism and book recommendations

    The true story of Theranos is stranger than fiction. From its conception to its downfall, this Silicon Valley startup reveals truths about human nature and questions about its founder. In Bad Blood, John Carreyrou exposes Elizabeth Holmes as a fraud and crafts a narrative about the power of FOMO, the fear of missing out. You don’t have to like nonfiction, business, science, or medicine to enjoy this story. It’s a page-turning tale about human nature, privilege, and justice. We read and loved Bad Blood over summer, and it got us thinking about the appeal of investigative journalism in general.

Love the easy conversation flow

A couple of months ago I started listening to podcasts at work. I started to look for book ones and came across this one. I enjoy the book feedback and overall flow of the conversations. By listening to some episodes I got book recommendations that normally I would not think of reading. I enjoy listening to each episode and have been trying to play catch up on them.

Review

I just started listening to your podcast and must say I absolutely LOVE it. It’s refreshing, fun and funny to listen to. The two of you are so charming and make me smile throughout. I will definitely be recommending this podcast to others and look forward to listening to all of your episodes.

No more “ums” please

Great content but the constant use of “um” is distracting and frankly, annoying. I judt can’t continue listening.
