Overdue is a podcast about the books you've been meaning to read. Join Andrew and Craig each week as they tackle a new title from their backlog. Classic literature, obscure plays, goofy murder mysteries: they'll read it all, one overdue book at a time.
This Week's Story: The Hairy Ape

5/19/2014: In case you missed it, we gave an interview about the show to Book Riot recently, and we think it turned out really well. Thanks for your continued support!
2/11/2013: Hi there, and welcome to Overdue!
We've all got them sitting on our (physical and virtual) bookshelves—those stories that have been given to us, or that we bought for ourselves, or that we're not sure where we got them but it doesn't matter because we've never read them anyway. We both took one long look at our personal libraries and decided, in the spirit of self-betterment (and being able to drop sick literary references during parties), that it was time to start working through them. We invite you to listen as we try to hash out our thoughts about these books.
Don't think of this as the podcast version of a book club—either Andrew or Craig will read each week's book and then explain it to the other person, so if you haven't read these books you'll still be able to follow along with the discussion (or, at least, you'll be no more confused than your hosts). If you have read the books in question, maybe you'll gain a valuable outside perspective! Or maybe you'll just laugh as two people completely misinterpret whatever it is they've just read—either way, we'll try to keep the discussion lively.
If you like what you hear, come back next week—we'll be talking about a new book every Monday!
