Garayur reviewed this podcast on Oct 21st, 2017
"Nerdyshow book club is a wonderful time. Enjoy their light discussions of what they have read, boggle as they give dramatic readings of some truly terrible fiction. Read along and join the discussion as they discuss a wide variety of books. Dive into Cyberpunk with William Gibson's Neuromancer. Explore Mythic Fiction with Neil Gaiman's Ocean at the end of the Lane. Take a drive through Florida with Carl Hiaasen's Sick Puppy. I could list the myriad interesting and varied books they've read or you could just listen yourself. tldr: This show is funny, interesting, and has exposed me to genre's and authors that I wouldn't have encountered otherwise and I don't regret any of them. Except perhaps Armada. But nobodies perfect. "
