Great podcast. Fascinating and Fun

Enlightening, entertaining and often amusing, the crew of Noctivagant energetically discuss both classic and current books about a range of topics concerning the Phenomenon. I have to admit I learned that descriptor from listening to this podcast! Their thorough research and deep understanding of the material are evident and they consistently make their discussions of even the driest of books compelling and fun to listen to. I always come away with something new to think about and a better understanding of just how much I don’t know. Their fairly recent addition of interviews with both authors of the books they’ve covered on the show and other experts in the field (Midnight Chats) are smoothly run, well organized and definitely worth the listen.
