Reading Envy 053: The Pool I Rarely Swim In

Jenny meets up with Luke Christie, a recent graduate of the university where she works, and avid reader. We compete with the squirrels in the ceiling to talk about the books we have been reading. The file is a little distorted, for which I apologize - I'm having some issues in somehow adding distortion when I export to MP3 in Audacity.
