    An idea I've been tossing around for quite awhile was reborn with a message from a longtime listener and friend - combining the Books episodes into one, single, longer episode. So I've combined Books 1416-1420 into one seamless audio file to get your thoughts and gather feedback. I personally enjoy the daily episodes and would consume them as a listener (were I not producing the show), but some of you may prefer the one seamless file. Either way, please let me know!

Covers a lot of ground

This is one of those podcasts that covers a lot of ground. Because Charlie reads and reviews so many books, this is a great place to get ideas... and because there are so many epsiodes you're bound to find stuff that relates to your life. Charlie is a great example of life-long learning and it's inspiring to see how he's spending his time now that he's out of the ring. Great show.
