A podcast in which we tell you about a book we just finished, and what we thought of it.


“The Golden Minute” by John Birmingham

A rollicking time-travel adventure featuring an 1870s lawman and a 21st century game developer, lost in time—and on the run from historical danger as well as deadly time police. It’s fun!

“The Ends of the World” by Peter Brannen

Tina Valentina may not be Lois Lane, but without Lois and Vicki and April and Cat and Trish and so many more, there’d be no Tina. And without Tina, there’d be no Friday. And without Friday, we wouldn’t have this delightful superhero comedy romp.
