Episode #1: What We Talk About When We Talk About Books We Haven't Read

Included in this month's show: Marco Roth (n+1), who hasn't read Pierre Bayard's How to Talk About Books You Haven't Read and is damn proud of it. Keith Gessen (n+1), who occasionally forgets his English, but still has high hopes for the youth of today. Hannah Lepow (Columbia first-year), who wrote the book on bullshitting but foolishly didn't get it published. Annie Minoff (Columbia first-year), the voice of reason! Justin Vlasits (Columbia first-year), the man who has heard of 3,000 books, but still hasn't read Catcher in the Rye.

Discussed: books we haven't read, books we wish we had read, and youth...sweet youth, Also, a bonus, off-topic conversation about bathroom reading that WILL get scatological! {ML}
