Episode 37 – Freakin’ Shyamalanian


In this episode, we discuss The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie. We enjoy(?) the worst thing on the internet, marvel at David Suchet’s performance as Poirot, discuss TV versus written mystery, and much more.

The episode naturally contains spoilers for the book.

Episode 34 – The Deadliest Gamey


We’re joined this week by special guest conchist, Dereck Alred, as we paradoxically undress The Indifferent Stars Above: The Harrowing Saga of a Donner Party Bride by Daniel James Brown. We also enjoy a controversial round of Is It KISS or AC/DC? So grab yourself a sweet, creamy pawpaw, have a seat next to the fire, and listen to the tale of some folks what got ate.

Booclub 2: Electric BooOOooOOoogaloo


Please join us for our second annual all-treat, no-trick Halloween special. We use the magical powers of the mystical Ouija board (TM Hasbro, available at fine retailers everywhere) to commune with spirits and speak with dead authors. Trigger warning: it’s pretty dark-sided, y’all.

Catch us on November 6th for our regularly scheduled episode.

Episode 31 – The Bookavoiders


In this episode, Ansel talks about The Moviegoer by Walker Percy. Meanwhile, Elijah and Dillon figuratively piss all over the city of New Orleans. Unlike the denizens of New Orleans, who, judging by the smell, have literally been pissing all over the city for over two centuries. Also, the Paul Stanley Cup is on the line as we play Is It Kiss or AC/DC?

Episode 25 – Who Books The Bookclub?


Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. Great podcast Bookclub releases today. Go and download it. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor…I am Bookclub.”
