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 19: "Slavoj Žižek" (with Tim Mahoney)
On a steamy and thought provoking episode of Literati, your near perfect hosts, Colin & Michael, admit some mistakes they’ve made on previous shows. Then, they reveal their brand new erotic business endeavor, “Dr. Flesh” — a website that tells you exactly where to find the sexiest parts of every book ever made. Think “Mr. Skin,” but for books! Finally, they invite Slovenian philosopher and cultural critic, Slavoj Žižek (Tim Mahoney, producer at MTV) onto the show to read a chapter from his most recent book, “Post-Truth Axiomatic Hermeneutics: How The Myth Of A Myth Lied To The Western World - Essays On Hegel, Lacan, And The Film Cruel Intentions.”
