Welcome to the pilot episode of Throwback Paperback! Throwback Paperback is a new podcast on the Nerd Party network, where cohosts Asia Bonilla and Charles Scheland share young adult literature with each other and re-read books to see how they feel from an adult perspective. To get this new pod going, we’re starting with Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, and the first book, The Lightning Thief. We are discussing chapters 1-8, learning about Demigods, blue food, Camp Half-Blood, and lots of monsters. Asia introduces Charles to a series that she read in sixth grade, and you get to know a little bit about us as cohosts.
