Misunderstood Authors, Tom Clancy, and the Wendell Berry Jar

Our friend Nick Rynerson joins us as he auditions to take over for our former co-host (but still friend of the podcast), Barnabas. Listen in as we discuss:

  • Why Nick’s coworkers have a Wendell Berry jar in the office
  • Misunderstood authors (both their work and their lifestyles)
  • How Keanu Reeves can be the nicest man in the world and Neil Young is seemingly not, yet both are Canadian
  • Why Dave is reading a Tom Clancy novel when we normally make fun of such things

All this and the usual silliness and mockery that goes on between everyone on this show.
