Boring Books for Bedtime is a weekly sleep podcast in which we calmly, quietly read something rather boring to silence the brain chatter keeping you awake. Think Aristotle, Thoreau, and whoever wrote the 1897 Sears Catalog—mostly nonfiction, mostly old, a perfect blend of vaguely-but-not-too interesting. If you're on Team Sleepless, lie back, take a deep breath, and let us read you to rest.

Banned Camp is a comedy podcast where we read banned books and try to figure out why they were banned in the first place. Join us as we explore the controversial themes within these forbidden tales through humorous discussions and satirical analysis. Uncover the reasons behind book censorship and the mysteries of literary censorship as we read banned and challenged books aloud.
Each season, we read a banned book in its entirety, out loud, with each episode of the season being a chapter from the book, followed by a discussion of what we found, if anything, in that chapter that could have been deemed ban-worthy.
Past seasons have included "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury, and "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton. The current season, we are reading the classic Mark Twain novel “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”.
By reading books like these, we can find answers to important questions like:
Why are banned books important?
What does "banned books" mean?
What does "challenged" books mean?
How does banning books affect students?
What is the most banned book?
How do book bans work?
Should book banning be allowed?
Are book bans constitutional?
Which books are banned in the US?
What is the most challenged book of all time?

Book Podcasts

A great way to understand and find a new opinion or persepective on the book you are reading is by listening to book podcasts! We all know that reading is a solitary activity, but it doesn't have to be. In fact, many of us love nothing more than talking about our favorite books with fellow book lovers. That's why book podcasts have become so popular.

With so many book podcasts out there, it can be hard to find one that really stands out. The truth is, the books podcasts genre is in need of some serious innovation. Author interviews can be inspiring, but let's face it, they often turn into the same old conversations about the writing process and book promotion. And too many shows feature the same guests promoting the same books.

The author of this 1917 narrative, who escaped from Germany and military service after 14 months of fighting in France, did not wish to have his name made public, fearing reprisals against his relatives. The vivid description of the life of a common German soldier during “The Great War” aroused much interest when it was published in the United States in serial form. Here was a warrior against his will, a hater of militarism for whom there was no romance in war, but only butchery and brutality, grime and vermin, inhuman toil and degradation. His story also contains the first German description of the retreat of the Teutonic armies after the battle of the Marne. – From the Translator’s Preface

A mysterious young widow arrives at Wildfell Hall, an Elizabethan mansion which has been empty for many years, with her young son. She lives there under an assumed name, Helen Graham, and very soon finds herself the victim of local slander. Refusing to believe anything scandalous about her, Gilbert Markham discovers her dark secrets. In her diary Helen writes about her husband's physical and moral decline through alcohol and the world of debauchery and cruelty from which she has fled. This passionate novel of betrayal is set within a moral framework tempered by Anne's optimistic belief in universal salvation. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is mainly considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. May Sinclair, in 1913, said that the slamming of Helen's bedroom door against her husband reverberated throughout Victorian England. In escaping from her husband, she violates not only social conventions, but also English law. (Summary by Wikipedia)
