Thomas Pynchon's novels are as wonderful as they are difficult. Our show, done in seasons, addresses one book at a time in a panel-discussion format. While we aren't experts, we do try very hard to understand and analyze as much as we can. We also occasionally have guests, songs, and you never know...perhaps Mr. Pynchon himself.

A Podcast of Characters

In a world of constant vanishing points into the endless new newness what was that I lost my train of thought and bought a new holy electric need machine, PIP cast is...sac-religious.
Bring on Mason and Dixon.

Indispensable for Pynchon fans

Pynchon is an intimidating but rewarding author to tackle, and this podcast — which comes across as part book club, part classroom discussion — does a great job of making the books accessible to first timers while also providing food for thought for those of us on our third or fourth read-throughs. I thoroughly enjoyed reliving Gravity’s Rainbow in this format, and the sometimes-rotating panel keeps the insights from getting one-note.

Amazing Stuff

Pynchon is my favorite writer and this team of thoughtful readers give him just the sort of close reading his work deserves. It’s great literary investigation with lots of humor and humanity. If you want to discover one of America’s greatest literary masters, this pod will be a great companion to you!
