Butterfly in the sky! I can go twice as high! I can’t sing, so just listen to the theme song… but every time it says Rainbow… think Rangers…
Yes, we really ARE that nerdy!
Reading Rangers is our new, bi-monthly (for now) episode series in which we pick a book and then discuss it! Thank you to our listener, Edward Giordano, for suggesting this many moons ago, because a book club seemed the perfect fit when Paul and Alex found out that Jen had NEVER READ THE VORKOSIGAN SAGA! (booooo hisssss). Clearly, burning Jen at the stake was not an option, so we’re doing this instead. Jen, Paul and Alex are joined by Stina and Kate on this edition of Reading Rangers to discuss Lois McMaster Bujold’s Shards of Honor. In future episodes, we’ll likely have a rotating cast of both new and old readers. The Vorkosigan Saga is about 50 million books long, so it may take us a while to get through it, but when we’re done we look forward to having listener input on what to read next!
We do hope you enjoy the crew’s discussion of everything from romance (or lack thereof) to interplanetary politics, culture wars, pod babies, disability representation, and Machiavellian emperors. It’s a doozy! If you like, follow along at home! Our next episode of Reading Rangers will be all about Barrayar.
