About This Show
Literati is a comedy podcast about the greatest American novels never written. For all those times you feel like reading but can’t because you don’t know how or it’s too boring. Every episode features a reading by a literary giant or at least a pretty tall contributor to a zine. Join hosts Colin O’Brien and Michael Wolf as they ask such important questions as “If Shakespeare was so smart then how come he’s dead?” and “Is Mark Twain funnier than Chris Kattan? Obviously not.” And catch the live show at Union Hall in Brooklyn!

Episode 15: "David Angeles" (with Jordan Mendoza)
3 days ago
It is an undisputed fact that books are boring, especially the long ones. So to help writers pen engaging, suspenseful prose, your hosts Colin & Michael deliver a short lecture on how to surprise your readers. Then, they have a good laugh reading the petty, worthless, objectively false reviews of the 100+ perfect books they’ve collectively written thus far. Later, they invite die-hard Harry Potter fan David Angeles (Jordan Mendoza) onto the program to read from his new, original book “The Underwater World Of Harold Peters.”
