Originally a kids book episode, we quickly forget that idea and break into a little Walking Dead comic action about the Whisperers. They seem like a lovely bunch of people… We discuss Mr. Neil Gaiman, and clear up what constitutes a children’s book. Pages also tries to figure out how a whole town misplaced some kids to a Piper and gets into a Lore-esque style podcast where documentaries are made about superheroes as if they were real.
We, like always in a timely fashion, chat about our “Pages Reads:” book of the month for October. Smith chose aptly themed book The Haunting of Hill House, by Shirley Jackson. Chalk this up to dating, or poor dialog, but we sort of had mixed feelings about this one.

From word of mouth, friend to friend, his podcast made it’s way to us and infected our brains. Captured by the stories, we decided to have our 2nd Halloween themed podcast!
There are many reasons for rereading a book. Maybe you love the book and want to relive the trials and triumphs of the protagonist (or antagonist, if you’re into that).
