Paperback reads. We love them cheap. We love them dirty. We love to ask: why are white men the only ones with inner lives or three-dimensional personalities? Hosts Amanda Meadows and Geoffrey Golden dig deep into the dollar bins of used bookstores and your grandmother’s storage unit, looking for pulp and sass. Dirt Cheap brings those long-lost stories to life, with a heavy dose of humor and a dash of schadenfreude. This season, we're reading Murder in the Glass Room, a Los Angeles noir novel starring Phil Norris, a misanthropic bookie-turned-detective who's bad at his job and obsessed with furniture.

It’s the poolside podcast you’ve been waiting for.

    Introducing: I Am Rama

    Introducing: I Am Rama

    Rama was a spiritual teacher in the 80s and 90s who inspired many of his students while helming what many of his detractors would describe as a cult. He defied society’s archetypal vision of a New Age leader, eschewing minimalism for wealth and celebrity. He was also a man ahead of his time, encouraging his students to develop careers in computer science before that was mainstream.

    For some, following Rama's lead worked out spiritually, and financially too. But for others, Rama's actions contradicted his cool persona; some eventually came forward with accusations of abuse, others vanished, whistleblowers went to the media, and the group began to shrink and splinter.



    In this 10-part investigative series, Jonathan Hirsch explores the life, death and impact of Rama. "I Am Rama" drops June 22.

Fives is not enough

Horrible b rated noir book check. Great snappy remarks and commentary check. Really hope they get another book and continue the podcast.

Funny and charming

On-point commentary on this hilariously bad book. The married hosts are very charming and have great conversational chemistry. I also enjoyed the little historical asides prompted by various obscure references.

What audiobooks should be…

My wife turned me on to this podcast - I’ve listened to about half of the episodes already this week. I love the commentary during the book - it’s super absorbing. As a teacher this is a great model for engaging with literature - even though this text is the pulpiest of pulp.
I hope it keeps going - I know I’ll keep listening.
