MIGHT WE INTEREST YOU IN SOME BOOKS?
welcome to so many damn books
About the Show
During the 2014 Tournament of Books, in one of the lighter corners of the internet, Christopher Hermelin and Drew Broussard recognized kindred literary spirits in the like-minded commentary they were both posting about books and reading. When the ToB Tenth Anniversary Party invites went out, they decided that this was the moment: they would be friends IRL. Drew was dressed vaguely as a rooster; Christopher, as a normal person. Neither was too put off by that and their budding friendship proved strong enough to at least go to the after-party.
And then it happened. An idea was born, over cheap beer in a SoHo dive bar. It would be a podcast unlike any other.
Many years and hundreds of books later, So Many Damn Books continues to blend the high and the low, the wicked and the divine, the sober and the not-so-sober, the famous and the infamous. Author guests, special drinks, and more book recs than you can shake a stick at -- what more could you need?
