Episode 236: Revenge of the Mini-Topics
This week, Josh and Dietrich tackle a host of minitopics provided by our listeners. The pair discuss which books will accompany them to their future desert island prison, which Kindle should be your first, and their favorite new genre authors of the last few years. They talk about the difference between single narrators or a cast of narrators in audio books, their favorite heroes outside DC and Marvel, and those authors that have mastered the surprisingly challenging task of crafting an action sequence. In addition, Josh talks about the best John Hodgman book in his already impressive career, Dietrich looks at a disappointing self-published book that falls into the cliche trap, and the pair discuss some classic Stephen King. They wrap up with the new horror series from Hulu, the return of Better Call Saul, and the most spectacular action film of the year.
