Pick of the Week Podcast
Running Time: 01:02:00
August 1, 2010 – The guys have returned from San Diego, intact. Mostly. Maybe a little loppy. This week, Ron Richards, Conor Kilpatrick, and Josh Flanagan take a look at books from a wider than normal slice of the industry, with books from six different publishers making the show. There's also a brief foray into Jerry Bruckheimer and Pearl Harbor. You know how these things go.
