So Many Books, So Little Time
You’ll never manage to read all the great books in the world, and that’s a fact.
Fortunately, you don’t need to.
Because every few weeks – more often with your kind support – your host Eric Beck Rubin brings you a fresh eye on a classic piece of writing.
It’s what public service broadcasting should be. Informative. Opinionated. Fun. Life-enhancing.
We need your generous support to keep going – please become a patron now.
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
