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 9: "Daphne McMillian" (with Halle Kiefer)
Science has proven that books can be really boring, especially the long ones. Luckily, your legally genius hosts, Colin & Michael, have come up with a way to make reading those long classics fun-ish. Afterward, they share with listeners some of their favorite books. Later, they invite master of gothic horror, Daphne McMillian (Halle Kiefer), onto the show to read from her horribly horrifying new book, “The Night Visitor.” It’s a real goofed up tale, so if you’re listening with children in the room, force your neighbors to adopt them and resume when they’re not your problem anymore.
