    Your Next Favorite Book: Faith, Hope, and Carnage

    Your Next Favorite Book: Faith, Hope, and Carnage

    While our hiatus as a podcast continues, I started a new podcast called Your Next Favorite Book, where I share about one book I really enjoy in every episode. These books run the spectrum of genres and styles—in much the same way the books Dave and I would share here do. But this is a bit of a deeper dive, almost a book review experience.
    And today, I want to share with you one of my favorite episodes so far, which focuses on a book that I discovered by accident. This is Faith, Hope, and Carnage by Nick Cave and Sean O'Hagan.
    And if you like what you hear, I hope you'll subscribe to Your Next Favorite Book on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or your preferred podcast app.

    I'm a Christian—Now What? A Q&A at Landmark Booksellers

    I'm a Christian—Now What? A Q&A at Landmark Booksellers

    Even though we’re still on a hiatus, it doesn’t mean that Dave and Aaron aren’t still doing things together. In fact today’s episode is a conversation recorded at Landmark Booksellers in Franklin Tennessee on March 1, 2023, to commemorate the release of Aaron's new book, I’m a Christian—Now What? A Guide to Your New Life with Christ.
    In this conversation, we discuss why Aaron wrote the book and some of its key themes. We also talk about some of the advice he wishes he’d been given and things he would have done differently if he could have a do-over as a new believer. We even had a chance to take a few questions from the audience at the store!
    I’m a Christian—Now What? A Guide to Your New Life with Christ is available now. Order today from Amazon or wherever you buy books.

    Introducing: Feel For the Game, Season 2

    Welcome back to the Area Code neighborhood: Feel For the Game.
    Nick and Noah return with a series of (mainly basketball) conversations about nostalgic moments in NBA history, current issues plaguing the league, how coping and mental health play a role in sports, and more.
    Tune-in as they unprofessionally, but sincerely explore why sports are bigger than just the score of the game. Subscribe now, and follow along to find out how many times Noah makes an unwarranted Kansas Jayhawks basketball reference.

Great Pod

I am a fan of Scarlets book “Afraid Of All The Things” so I was excited when I found out she was a co host of a podcast. You all are so fun to listen to and have inspired me to read more. Two thumbs up! Highly recommend.

A woman, Canadian and a beach bum walked into a recording booth to talk about books. I enjoy the show every week.
