Spooktober continues! A narrator wanders rooms in his old house, telling the reader stories about his life. Is he an old man responding to a psychological evaluation? Is he a ghost recounting (and selectively editing) his best and worst memories? Will we ever know peace from the miasma of possibilities? Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.

    Jagged Little Mill, a Don Quixote miniseries - Episodes 7 & 8

    1:34:59

    Enjoy another episode of our newest show-within-a-show! We're reading Edith Grossman's translation of Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes a few chapters at a time. Some Patreon supporters get these episodes monthly, but every two months we'll combine them for general consumption. These episodes cover Chapters 43-52 of Part One, and the Prologue and Chapters 1-9 of Part Two. In Episode 7, a few more ancillary characters get their moment in the sun before Don Quixote's companions "enchant" him and bring him home. But Cervantes has heard that Quixote rode again! If only those stories were out there somewhere... In Episode 8, apparently everyone in Don Quixote's world knows about the novel Don Quixote now? And they sure have opinions! Find out more about how to get these episodes monthly at patreon.com/overduepod. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    It's time to solve the mystery of the Boxcar Children! (Or is it The Box-Car Children?)

Tune in to hear about our own secret hideouts and to learn about Andrew's favorite new website for author research. Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.

    Ep 492 - Too Like the Lightning, by Ada Palmer

    1:07:32

    Ada Palmer's Too Like the Lightning is mostly concerned with big historical questions like "what if nationality had nothing to do with geography" and "what if a boy could make toys come to life," but it also deals with things like "what if noticing gender were a fetish" and "what if all the world's leaders were secretly slamming each other."  Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
