A podcast about the books you've been meaning to read. Updates Mondays.

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.


Caveat Lector 


While Andrew and Craig believe the joy of discovery is crucial to enjoying any well-told tale, they will not shy away from spoiling specific story beats when necessary. Plus, these are books you should have read by now.

Our theme music is an excerpt from Miles Davis' "Freddie Freeloader," which you can buy from iTunes or Amazon MP3—it's almost ten minutes long, so it's a pretty good bang for your buck.

The podcast is introduced by the silky smooth, radio-friendly pipes of our good friend Steve Dowling.

Andrew and Craig met at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio in 2004 and worked together on several projects before starting Overdue in early 2013. In 2015, Overdue joined the Headgum podcast network.
