Comments

  1. Sweet. Thanks for putting this up!

    My personal favorite: The Sisters Brothers.

  2. Peter Breuer says:

    Excellent list. Looks like I will have a few new things to read over the summer. It is often difficult to find enjoyable but yet intelligent reading materials.

  3. Are you going to do a list for the listener provided music?

  4. Currently enjoying The Lost City of Z.

    Thanks for “Black Swan Green,” “10,000 Saints,” “30 For 30: Renée,” “Undefeated,” “The Imposter,” & “Run the Jewels.”

    I wish this segment was apart of every show.

  5. The Stench of Honolulu by Jack Handey was absolutely hilarious. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Great recommendation!
