Bookbabble (Retro) Episode 77: The Futility of Nobel Speculations
Recorded 3 Oct 2010
Babblers: Bjorn, Lone, Marcel, Donny

Synopsis:

This episode was very long in production. The subject matter required many years of marinating, for the ideas to germinate, etc, etc. The crew discusses the Nobel Prize for Literature… for 2010. 🙂

p.s None of us were even close. Mario Vargas Llosa was the winner. Hey, it hardly counts as a spoiler when it’s almost 4 years ago.

Ep 74: World Cup Chat – Part 2

Aug 29, 2010 by

Bookbabble Episode 74: World Cup Chat – Part 2
Recorded 21 June  2010
Babblers: Marcel, Bjorn, Donny

Synopsis:

Spain-2010-World-Cup-Champions

This is one of the strangest, most languid chit-chat in Bookbabble’s short history.  This episode drops you right in the middle of a football match watched by the boys in three different countries – simultaneously.  And still somehow manage to talk about horror movies, private parts and racism.  Oh, and football related books and movies too.  (Yeah, it would have been better if this episode came out, oh, about 2 months sooner, but hey, at least you get to see how well we did our predictions).

Be warned, this is a rambling, totally unedited show.

Show Length: 1:37:24

Show Notes:
