Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we discuss a wide range of topics and provide the kind of perspectives you’ve grown to love from our stable of thoughtful, talented writers and editors. Please consider subscribing, enjoying, and reviewing the show, all of which you can do just a few clicks away in iTunes or Stitcher.

Associate editor Erin Straza is joined by staff writers S.D. Kelly and Valerie Dunham to discuss the prevalence of personal essays, B.J. Novak’s meta-children’s book about the act of reading, and the world’s most-hated font.
