The highly engaging British crime fiction novelist William Shaw joins us this week from Brighton, England! We chat with him about his books, his earlier career as a journalist and we talk a little about refugees in both countries. Charles Dickens, who can’t resist a fellow Brit, also pops in for a chat with William.
We have the award winning author Nathan Lowell on this week! We chat with him about his books and life as a science fiction and fantasy author. Nathan also shares a book recommendation of his own with us. Dave talks about the impending Denver teacher strike and we all get a little fired up. Amy, our Denver Librarian, calls in again this week!
This week Dave tells an eye opening story about drug use and high school students. Andrew is stuck in a hotel room in Austin, Texas and we dive into author photos on Goodreads. We also debut a new segment with a Denver Public Librarian!
Our heroes, Dave, Andrew and Laura, talk about books that they had great expectations for and that failed miserably. At the mention of Great Expectations, Charles Dickens uses that as an excuse to call in and we also dive deep into a small town in Mississsippi because of Dave’s book, Desperation Road.
In episode 4 our heroes, Dave, Andrew and Laura, take a call from Charles Dickens who was upset at their critique of his Tale of Two Cities. Andrew announces a plan to mail a book to any listener that needs a book recommendation. Dave tells a story about two drunk guys and a drone in his backyard at dusk and, yet again, all three of them are annoyed by other people.
In episode 3 (our best episode to date!), our heroes, Dave, Andrew and Laura, discuss why Andrew can’t have fruit delivered to his office, why one of Dave’s students got up in the middle of class and walked out and they had spirited discussions about, well, pretty much everything including their book recommendations.
