Join host Emily Edwards and a guest for a weekly "book club" discussion on every book you wanted to destroy in English class, but couldn't.

This podcast is an introduction to Anglophone literature, from ancient times to the present, done by a Ph.D. with lots of books and musical instruments.

You can listen to the shows in any order, although from time to time, episodes will make brief mention of previous or upcoming ones.
