CRWM #09: Dr Mütter’s Marvels

January 31, 2016 05:00 - 26.3 MB

For episode nine of Come Read With Me, my friend Jess joined me to discuss Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz’ Dr. Mütter’s Marvels: A True Tale of Intrigue and Innovation at the Dawn of Modern Medicine. As usual, there were plenty of tangents including a five-minute tangent (you’re welcome, I edited it from 20) about Jane Austen fan… Continue reading CRWM #09: Dr Mütter’s Marvels

CRWM #08: The Bell Jar

October 31, 2015 04:00 - 24.4 MB

For episode eight of Come Read With Me my friend Peter joined me to discuss Sylvia Path’s only novel The Bell Jar. Although his reasons for wanting to read it were questionable, it was an interesting read. Peter does tweet @peteantonellis, but be forewarned it is all politics and The Simpsons. Aside from Peter’s ridiculous knowledge when it… Continue reading CRWM #08: The Bell Jar

CRWM #07: The Adventures of Captain Underpants

August 31, 2015 16:00 - 25.7 MB

For episode seven of Come Read With Me, I was joined by my friend Dalton. He chose The Adventures of Captain Underpants (link to my review) and I am glad he did. This isn’t a book I would have gone out of my way, but it’s one of those books that is as much a part… Continue reading CRWM #07: The Adventures of Captain Underpants

June 30, 2015 04:00 - 24.3 MB

My friend Emily joined me to talk about Maya Angelou’s most famous work I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. And I’m not sure how I did it, but even with my two weeks in Spain and being part of a wedding this past weekend, I managed to get this edited and online for June! I’m… Continue reading CRWM #06: I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

CRWM #05: Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion

April 30, 2015 04:00 - 25.7 MB

In the longest episode yet I talk with one of my roommates, Mike, about two VERY long books Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion, the first two novels of the Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons. I’m sad I had to cut out as much as I did (including a great aside about Doctor Who), but I think… Continue reading CRWM #05: Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion

CRWM #04: Twilight

February 28, 2015 05:00 - 23.5 MB

The highly anticipated (perhaps the only anticipated episode ever) of Come Read With Me has arrived! In case you hadn’t heard, I read the infamous Twilight Saga last year. It took her more than five years, but my oldest friend finally wore me down and I read it for the podcast. It wasn’t as bad as… Continue reading CRWM #04: Twilight

CRWM #03: The Handmaid’s Tale

December 22, 2014 05:00 - 23.6 MB

Note: This episode is going live early due to the holidays, traveling and the potential delay with iTunes uploading. Welcome to Episode 3 of Come Read With Me, where my friend Patrick and I dive into Margaret Atwood’s classic dystopia A Handmaid’s Tale. Patrick agreed to be on the podcast before he even knew what the podcast… Continue reading CRWM #03: The Handmaid’s Tale

My guest this episode is my friend Caitrin and we discuss Abigail Reynold’s The Man Who Loved Pride & Prejudice which I wrote about back in January!

As promised, here is Episode 1 (the real first episode) of Come Read With Me!

CRWM #00: Welcome!

July 31, 2014 04:15 - 2.52 MB

Welcome to MY world. This is the introductory episode of my new podcast, Come Read With Me. It’s a bit rambling and I can guarantee the three episodes I’ve already recorded (with other people) are much more entertaining! As I say in the episode and as I said during my four-year blogoversery celebration, this episode is… Continue reading CRWM #00: Welcome!
