It’s that time of year again. The leaves are changing colors, the weather has that familiar chill, the thin veil that separates our world from that of ghosts, ghouls, and demons has evaporated, and podcasts put out Halloween themed episodes. We club some ghost stories, both personal and impersonal. It’s some primo Halloween-o. Have a listen, if you dare! Mwahahahaha!

Bookclub will be resuming its regularly scheduled programming this Friday, November 3rd, with our clubbing of The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett.

Episode 5 – The Sins of Our Teachers

Hey kids! Have you been assigned Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter for your high school English class? If so, do I have a podcast for you! It’s significantly shorter and much more entertaining, so don’t even bother with that musty old tome. Just listen to this episode the night before the big test, and we guarantee you’ll get a grade.

Special thanks to the band HUGS for allowing us the use of their song “(He’s Got That) Gamma Vision.” Stay tuned all the way through the end to hear this track that your parents definitely don’t want you to listen to.

Special special thanks to Misti Smith and the fine folks at Sew Good for sponsoring this episode.

Just a heads up, this ‘sode runs a little longer than usual at around 75 minutes.

Thank you, and God bless.

Episode 4 – Straight Outta Urras

The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards. Naturally, Bookclub rises to the occasion and makes butt jokes. We also discuss space communism, Star Trek, and Star Wars. It’s more fun than shooting gift monkeys in a barrel! That’s pretty wizard, Annie!

Special thanks to Jayson Backes and the fine folks at Wizzy Wow! for sponsoring this week’s episode.
