Reading List Referendum

Reading List Referendum

I appreciate very much your extra credit reading lists, but usually there’s insufficient time between their posting and the live show for actually reading them. It would be great if you can add a few excerpts from these sources to the show page before each show.

For a few months now we’ve been cranking out daily Extra Credit Reading Lists with our show posts. Now we want to hear your feedback. Are they helpful? What for? As a rule, we prioritize blog posts and international news sources over the more mainstream stuff that we expect you can find on your own, and we imagine that webby suggestions are more helpful to you than books. Right on? Way off? Should we be spending our time at more gainly pursuits? Let us know.

By the way, we just started a Google email group to talk about ways to make the site better. Come on down.
