Dave and I are back in the studio while Barnabas is still off doing something else. So, we’re joined by our friends, Nick Rynerson and James Kinnard, to talk about our reading through different seasons of life. Listen in as we discuss:

  • How our reading habits grew and changed from high school through adulthood
  • If teen boys will successfully impress girls by reading eastern philosophy
  • Books we read in high school that we ended up liking
  • What happens when a middle-schooler reads Camus
  • If Bloomington counts as a suburb of Chicago
  • The problem with self-appointed experts

As always, thanks to our friends at Lagares Coffee Roaster for partnering with us to make the Table of (mal)Contents blendOrder all the bags you can handle today.
