Thomas Pynchon's novels are as wonderful as they are difficult. Our show, done in seasons, addresses one book at a time in a panel-discussion format. While we aren't experts, we do try very hard to understand and analyze as much as we can. We also occasionally have guests, songs, and you never know...perhaps Mr. Pynchon himself.

Popping With Pynchonian Potential

Fun, insightful discussion - eager for them to dig into some of Pynchon’s longer works! (Love the holiday episode!)

Great Podcast about Pynchon’s Works

I’m so glad this show exists. Once I started diving into these books I had to reach out for some assistance. I wanted to hear what other people thought and managed to piece together from them. I love the Chums of Chance song – bravo! It’s very fun and catchy. I read Slow Learner along with these guys and appreciated their insights. I look forward to what they have to say about Inherent Vice and Pynchon’s longer works. I wonder how much draw Paul Thomas Anderson’s movie with bring to the books. I’m not sure if There Will Be Blood did much for Upton Sinclair though. But hey, there’s no end to how much there is to discuss about books like Mason & Dixon and Against the Day. I don’t know how they’d break them up into episodes, but I’ll be there listening with my red & white blazer and sky blue trousers – cheerio chums!


Been hoping for a show such as this ever since I started reading Pynchon’s works. They demand intelligent discussion and this podcast delivers it. Thank you all for your hard work and keep it up!
