S2E14 – COVERED Book Club #2 – PAPER by Mark Kurlansky, feat. Andy Welfle and Johnny Gamber

Synopsis: It’s our season 2 finale and to celebrate, we’ve got TWO – count ’em, TWO! – special guests. From the Erasable podcast, we welcome Andy Welfle and Johnny Gamber to the show to discuss Mark Kurlansky’s book, Paper: Paging Through History. We discuss whether technology changes society, digital vs. analog, the role of handwriting in today’s society, how paper has been used to spread information and incite dissent, and the future of paper in an increasingly digital world.

Links to all books discussed in this episode (where possible) will go to Watchung Booksellers, a wonderful local independent bookstore in my home state of New Jersey.
