  • Access to Book Fight After Dark, our monthly bonus episode available only to subscribers




per month


For the last several years, we've been putting out free weekly episodes of the Book Fight podcast: hour-long discussions of books, short stories, essays, the craft of writing, literary gossip, weird fan fiction, and sometimes snacks. We're both writers, editors, and college professors, though we're also famously dumb: this is not, by any stretch, The New Yorker's books podcast.

For $5, we're offering three bonus episodes per month. That includes a monthly installment of Book Fight After Dark, where we explore some of the weirder corners of the publishing world (Nascar romances, alien erotica, food-based cozy mysteries).

We also do two mini-episodes, each about 30 minutes in length, that rotate in format. In our Reading the Room episodes, for instance, we try to help writers with awkward social situations. How do you talk to your favorite author after a reading? Should you expect your spouse or partner to read (or care about) your work? How do you talk to your non-writer friends about their bad taste in books without sounding like a snob?

Other mini-episodes have included dives into the NaNoWriMo forums, fan fiction, and rating the ideal snacks for writers and readers.

Your subscription to our Patreon also helps support the show more generally, helping us continue to make a new hour-long episode each week and just letting us know that you appreciate what we're doing. 

We know $5 a month may be too steep for some folks, especially in our current economic times. We've created a $2 level that's sort of like a tip jar, where you can throw us a bit of coin to support the regular episodes. We appreciate those donations, too! But $5/month is the threshold for getting the bonus content, which we think is a pretty good deal, all things considered.

Thanks for listening! And for your support of what we do.
