 Your Hosts This Episode

Anna Ferri | Amanda Wanner | Matthew Murray

We discuss online reading vs book reading (“I just want to read the wiki article”), whether pop science is formulaic, if we read non-fiction to learn explicit facts or provoke thought generally, the impact of blog writing/reading on technology books, our audiobook preferences, anti-narratives (handbooks), edutainment, “There is some fiction in my non-fiction!,” lying by omission, hate reads, and more…

Technology (Non-Fiction) We Read (or kinda):

Other books read

A few more “books” we mentioned

In a podcast where we set out to read every genre (regardless of our actual interest) our second episode features: Gothic Literature.

Listen to hosts Anna Ferri, Meghan Whyte, Amanda Wanner, and Matthew Murray discuss dread, castles, fear of foreigners, just what exactly counts as "gothic" literature, and all the vampires. 

(With a slightly lower sound quality than the first; our apologies!)
