Unprintable: The LitReactor Podcast Episode 9 - Reading Habits

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, Class Director Rob W. Hart, and Managing Editor Joshua Chaplinsky.


Episode 9 - Reading Habits

This month your intrepid podcasters cover a variety of topics, from the artistic mastery and relative hotness of EL James and Stephenie Meyer, to the books they're reading this month (Cath actually read something she didn't hate!), to an exploration of reading habits. From binge-reading to skipping to the end to reading multiple books at once, the crew shines a bright light on this important and oft-ignored topic. 

The discussion finally devolves into an idea for a contest, in which you, the listeners, are encouraged to send us pictures of yourselves in sexy reading poses. At which point you will win... something. 

This sounds really creepy when you don't hear about it in context. Just go listen!

Your Hosts

Cath Murphy writes for a bunch of literary and film websites (where “bunch” isn’t quite as many as it sounds), offering unwanted opinions on anything that appears in her crosshairs. 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.

Rob W. Hart is the associate publisher for MysteriousPress.com. His short stories have appeared in Dogmatika, Needle: A Magazine of Noir, Crime Factory, and Shotgun Honey, and he is the author of The Last Safe Place: A Zombie Novella. He lives in New York City. You can find him on the interwebz at www.robwhart.com.

Joshua Chaplinsky is the Managing Editor of LitReactor. He also writes for Twitch and has written for ChuckPalahniuk.net. He might still be a guitarist in the band SpeedSpeedSpeed and is the poison pen behind thejamminjabber, although he's not so sure he should admit it.
