Episode 08: Sit Down and Read!

To celebrate our recent collaboration with the non-profit charity “1000 Books Before Kindergarten,” this week’s episode is all about books! We highlight our childhood classics (Goosebumps, Animorphs, Little Golden Books, Rolad Dahl, Dr. Seuss), as well as discuss our current favorites (Brave New World, Sword of Shannara, 1984, Halo Novels).

Again, we are so excited to be working with “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” to help bring awareness to child literacy. The goal is simply to encourage parents to read 1000 books to their newborn, infant or toddler before they reach kindergarten in an effort to promote literacy and bonding. Check out their website at (http://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org) for reading logs, library programs, book lists and much more.

In “Whatcha Doing” we find out that Gerald is enjoying the Star Wars: Battlefront Beta, Jordan’s been catching up on television shows (Black List, Blind Spot, Flash, Arrow), and David discusses the guys’ recent play through of the new PC game “Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes” Check out the full Let’s Play video at: (https://youtu.be/y-RasVOKLac).

We also answer a listener’s email to find out our thoughts on whether trailers spoil or even discourage us from seeing certain movies. Plus, we debut the Sit Down Standard’s new soundboard – it’s awesome!
