About

The Close Reads Podcast Network produces podcasts for anyone who loves literature. We read Great Books and talk about them. We currently have three in-production shows:

  • Close Reads - the flagship show where we discuss novels and short stories, a little bit at a time
  • The Play's the Thing - Shakespeare's canon, one act at a time
  • Libromania - A conversations show in which David interviews people about the many things that make books great. Things like book design and book stores and the process of writing books. 
  • The Daily Poem - A daily audio anthology of the world's greatest poetry

But we have lots of other shows we want to bring you, including a show dedicated to movies and another dedicated to the lives of authors. 

When we started the show 100+ episodes ago we figured, hey, worst case we get to talk about books we like together. That's not so bad. But it turns people like talking about books with us, too. The community on the Facebook group has shown us that. And we love, love, love being a part of the Close Reads community. We don't feel like we're talking at people, rather that we're talking with people. And it's tons of fun. But it's also tons of work and we want to be able to give some income to the stars of the show, and to the people who help edit and produce it. We want to keep on reading and chatting and creating great content for you. But we need your help to do that. 

Please consider partnering with us. We've got lots of great rewards to offer as thanks, including Close Reads swag and bonus episodes and all sorts of awesome things like that. 

Thanks for listening, thanks for reading.
