The Hawk's Way

Encounters with Fierce Beauty

By: Sy Montgomery
Narrated by: Sy Montgomery
Length: 1 hour 58 minutes

“The brilliant Sy Montgomery (The Soul of an Octopus) focuses her keen eye and powers of observation on raptors, and it is gripping (pardon the pun)!

Four Thousand Weeks

Time Management for Mortals

By: Oliver Burkeman
Narrated by: Oliver Burkeman
Length: 5 hours 53 minutes

“Burkeman’s title emphasizes that if we make it to 80 years of age, we live roughly four thousand weeks. That intro alone sounds pretty sobering, but Burkeman takes us through philosophers’ and scientists’ wisdom across centuries with conclusions that are very optimistic. Burke reassures us with stories such as the American who in 1969 went... Read more

Off the Edge

Flat Earthers, Conspiracy Culture, and Why People Will Believe Anything

By: Kelly Weill
Narrated by: Xe Sands
Length: 7 hours 13 minutes

“It's easy to look at the social and political landscape of the past few years and despair for the human race. We may feel we are entering a new dark age, a social-media-fueled fracturing that will Balkanize our nations and cultures until consensus reality vanishes entirely. Is this our fate, a new tribalism formed from Facebook echo chambers,... Read more

Long Time Coming

Reckoning with Race in America

By: Michael Eric Dyson
Narrated by: Michael Eric Dyson
Length: 4 hours 46 minutes

“What a nuanced, thoughtful, raw book. Written in letters to Black folks murdered in America over the past decade, these observations on how the intersections of history and culture create our world are stunning.

Why Fish Don't Exist

A Story of Loss, Love, and the Hidden Order of Life

By: Lulu Miller
Narrated by: Lulu Miller
Length: 4 hours 55 minutes

“Just... wow. Never have I read anything like this. It's remarkable. To say it's part memoir and part biography of David Starr Jordan, the famous taxonomist (don't worry, I didn't know who he was either), on some level is true, but it doesn't even begin to encompass everything this book is. In just over 200 pages, Miller tackles existential... Read more
