NOT YOUR AVERAGE BOOK PODCAST

Updated: Apr 24, 2021

Hello and welcome to the Chapter By Chapter Podcast!


As this is our first post on the website, I figured it'd be a good idea to dive into what the show is, who we are, and what you can expect from us as we continually grow this little passion of ours.


A Little History


Chapter By Chapter is one in a long string of different podcasts series that Steve and I have attempted to develop over the past few years. We've worked on ideas involving the music industry, comic books, even general entertainment news. But none of them really "clicked".


Little did I know, however, I was already sitting on a content goldmine...


In the past few years, I've made it a point to read as many books as I possibly can. Not for any real goal or purpose, but just to simply read more often because the majority of my childhood and teens was spent watching TV and reading comics.


But I still had trouble reading regularly. One of the reasons being that reading is such a lonely activity; there's not a lot of opportunities to go over to a friend's house simply to read a book together the same way you would watch a movie (I've tried and it's weird). Another reason was that books demand a lot of attention. There were always things that I would fail to pick up on until a second reading or by having one of them BookTube channels explain it to me in hour-long chunks.


So, what did I do to make sure I had a solid podcast as well as make me accountable for getting a book in me every once in a while? I thought of Chapter By Chapter and grabbed Steve to come along.


What is Chapter By Chapter?


Everything you need to know about the podcast is right there in the name; every weekday, Steve and I summarize, analyze, and shoot the shit about one chapter of a book until we're finished. And the first book we're covering is the first book in Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time Series, Eye of the World.


The idea is still fresh and I expect plenty of changes to come as we settle into the routine of the show, but there's one thing that I feel like I need to get across: WE ARE NOT EXPERTS. In fact, it's arguable if we are even sober for the podcast. The idea here is to read some old and new books, talk about them, and walk you through the book as if you are reading with friends. Actually, if you're listening to us, you ARE a friend!


Steve and I are extremely interested in sci-fi and fantasy, and I expect that these are the type of books we're going to cover over the next couple of years. But if you have any suggestions, please send 'em our way at chapterbychapterpodcast@gmail.com!


We're excited to have you on board. So grab your utensils, it's time to eat some book...
