Crooked Media Reads

We are so excited to be launching Crooked Media Reads. We know our audience of passionate engaged dweebs loves reading and they’ve questioned if we’d ever do more with books than just using them as background props to seem smart on Zoom. Turns out the answer is yes. We can’t wait to point listeners to brilliant authors telling stories and breaking down issues in ways that are inspiring, challenging, and entertaining. And we’re thrilled to be working with Zando to help us lift up those voices.
