On our show, we usually get curious about far-flung destinations and great books that can transport us there. But a few weeks ago, we invited you to participate in our audience survey — and wow! you did.
In this mini-episode, we share some of the results from our end-of-Season-1 audience survey, preview changes we’re making to the show, discuss updates to the website, and announce the first four destinations for Season 2. Spoiler: We think you’re going to like them! We also discuss a few of the books we’ve read lately.
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
30 Days of Night by Steve Niles & Ben Templesmith
The Labyrinth of the Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
The Way Men Act by Elinor Lipman
