Every month, Unprintable will take an irreverent look at books, the publishing industry, reading, writing, and more; featuring the know-it-all geekery of LitReactor columnist Cath Murphy, Education Director Rob W. Hart, and Managing Editor Joshua Chaplinsky.
Episode 16 - Advocating for Books (Guest: Robb Olson from Booked.)
We are joined by supposed rival podcaster, Robb Olson of Booked., and put the Great Podcast War of 2013 to bed with no dinner. He is an ubermensch and has a mellifluous radio voice. We debate Fifty Shades casting, Amazon's Matchbook, and the new Salinger documentary.
Reads: Bumbling Italian Satanists, interactive novels, cheerleader noir, and flying serpents cutting a rug.
Topic: Booksarecoolwho'swithme?C'mon! Being an advocate for the written word. Why is it so important and why do we feel compelled to do it?

She is a co-host of Unprintable: The Official Podcast of LitReactor.com, and along with the fabulous Eve Harvey she also podcasts very rude stuff on Sluttylemon.
