Books with your coffee buddies
Great show. The hosts sound like two guys having coffee who happen to talk about books. That is not to say they are not erudite--they are.
It's just that no matter what book they are talking about they approach the subject with wit,humility,and (dare I say it) a dose of Nebraska plainspeak.
A great loss
I am so sorry to hear about Otis Young's death. I feel like I know you both after listening to you for a couple of years. Your podcast has given me many wonderful books to read. I am sure that you and Otis' family have a heavy heart at this time. Know that he enriched lives with his book discussions.
