I haven't read that book that you think everyone should read. I haven't read many books at all. I know HOW, I just read many other things and do other things and STOP JUDGING. So, I'll have guests tell me their favorite book and what happens and why I dumb for not reading it. Enjoy.

Finally!!! A must listen for any podcaster!
Such a great show to educate the wannabe readers! Hilariously executed and entertaining. Can't wait to see where this goes.
¡¡ Finally !!
I have been waiting for Steve to put out this podcast. He has been a great guest on a lot of other podcast so I'm glad he is putting it out.
Also, the theme is a great one. Can't wait for future episodes.
Listen as 1 comic gets his mind blown by facts in books he's never read as narrated by people who barely remember what happened in them.
