Listen to clips from the audiobooks mentioned in this episode:

From the Academy Award®–winning actor, an unconventional memoir filled with raucous stories, outlaw wisdom, and lessons learned the hard way about living with greater satisfaction.

Spend a rollicking evening with Nick Offerman’s All Rise, an audiobook of deliberative talking, mirth, and song that compels listeners to chuckle while also causing them to contemplate a better side of humanity than the one to which they’ve grown accustomed.

In this audiobook, Anaïs Mitchell takes readers inside her more than decade’s-long process of building the musical Hadestown, the winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Fans and newcomers alike will love this deeply thoughtful, revealing look at how the songs from “the underground” evolved, and became the songs we sing again and again.
