In this bonus episode recorded before a live audience, co-hosts Sara Dixon and Daniel Pewewardy join Suzanne Perez and Beth Golay from the KMUW podcast Books & Whatnot to celebrate the 2023 kickoff of the #ReadICT challenge. A departure from the usual podcast format, these book aficionados and fellow podcasters talk about the history of the challenge and explore each category and how it might be approached differently by readers. This episode is full of great recommendations for each category (including some from a few very brave audience members) as well as their own reading plans for #ReadICT 2023!
Season 3 of Read. Return. Repeat. premiered on January 13, 2023 with a special crossover episode with Books & Whatnot. The four hosts – and some guests – shared several recommendations in each of the categories in the brand new #ReadICT 2023 challenge.
Season 2, hosted by librarians Sara Dixon and Daniel Pewewardy, had nine episodes. Guests included seven authors, an English literature professor, a bookseller, and a librarian.
Season 1 was hosted by librarian Sara McNeil. Guests included ReadICT creator Suzanne Perez, authors, and people from a number of literary, academic, and cultural institutions.
