The show goes on – and we’re adding new episodes all the time! One of these days I’ll get back to doing my actual job, but this is too much fun for now. Here’s an episode featuring Kekla Magoon and The Season of Styx Malone.

And one with Dan Gutman and the first book in his Genius Files series.

And of course, it’s always the right time for a Ruth Bader Ginsburg tribute, here’s Susan B. Katz with her biography of RBG!

And the newest episode, a Vanderbeekers of 141st St. challenge, with Karina Yan Glaser (and special guest) going head to head with fan and fellow New Yorker, Angela!
