We’ve been off for a week—but we’re back with a supersized episode! While we only discuss eight books (plus an impromptu “Grounded” chat), there’s a lot of news to keep us going a bit long. Plus, we have plenty of announcements at the end of the show regarding our next Comic Con appearance, future episodes, and our brand-spanking-new website design. So listen on listeners!
The show is embedded below and is now available on iTunes for subscription. Each episode will be labeled "podcast" so you can link to previous episodes here on the blog. Refer to the Show Notes after the jump as well as a direct link to download the MP3.
