If, like us, you live with a stack of guilt-making, must-read books towering over your bed, then you'll find your poison in Overdue, or maybe a special kind of torture. Our hosts Andrew and Craig, plus occasional guests, seek out books they ought to have read, then read them and report back. The idea is that this will inspire us to read the book ourselves, at bloody last, or at a minimum enable us to pretend we've read it for the rest of our lives (Thomas Piketty's Capital, anyone?). It's an effective format, delivered with genial good humour and not at all shackled by snobbery - their picks run the gamut from Jane Eyre to 50 Shades of Gray - and there are 235 episodes at your disposal.
Gateway episodes: #227 The World According to Garp (27 Feb 2016) / #200 Infinite Jest / #150 Fifty Shades Freed (14 Dec 2015)
