Simultaneously recorded live from their homes in Minneapolis and Toronto, the boys are back with another edition of the isolation tapes. In response to a kind listener request, this episode is all about books as Jason and James co-opt the Film Club template to offer six books you might love to read during this time of limited social obligation. From high mountain peaks and stormy oceans to the stoic mind and more, it’s a set of books that will have you traveling all over the globe without ever leaving your couch.


EP 104 wrist check. James’ 16570 on a blue rubber from Everest Bands. Yes, it was too much work to correct the date.

Along with the books, stay tuned for more foglight chat (last week Jason had 1/4 of his light working), climbers frozen in time, and a hilarious look at some of the world’s strangest animals. This episode is proudly brought to you by the HODINKEE Shop, just press play and thanks so much for listening.
