How to Change Your Mind

What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence

By Michael Pollan
Narrated by: Michael Pollan
Length: 13 hours 34 minutes

How to Change Your Mind

“Pollan brings his humor, lyricism, and love for deep research to the admittedly taboo field of psychedelics. This book is an exhaustive exploration of these mysterious substances, in which he balances skepticism of the culture that surrounds them with optimism for their potential therapeutic use.”

Utopia Avenue

A Novel

By David Mitchell
Narrated by: Ralph Lister
Length: 25 hours 16 minutes

If you enjoyed Daisy Jones & The Six, then you’ll love Utopia Avenue.

“Fans of David Mitchell will not be disappointed with his latest masterpiece! Ostensibly a novel about a band coming together in England in the late 1960s, Utopia Avenue is so much more! Mitchell goes deep into the backstories of the band members to explore grief, alcoholism, sexuality and schizophrenia (just to name a few) in his own unique style. Historical events, like Viet Nam protests and the proliferation of drug use, also make appearances giving the novel gravitas and authenticity. On a more light hearted note, cameos by actual artists are scattered within the novel to great effect: making small talk with David Bowie, meeting Brian Jones backstage, partying with Leonard Cohen and Janis Joplin, taking acid with Jerry Garcia. Utopia Avenue is a big story comprised of hundreds of little gems—a great read!”

Blitzed

Drugs in the Third Reich

By Norman Ohler
Narrated by: Stefan Rudnicki
Length: 7 hours 19 minutes

The Nazi regime preached an ideology of physical, mental, and moral purity. But as Norman Ohler reveals in this gripping new history, the Third Reich was saturated with drugs.

On the eve of World War II, Germany was a pharmaceutical powerhouse, and companies such as Merck and Bayer cooked up cocaine, opiates, and, most of all, methamphetamines,...

Invisible Women

Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

By Caroline Criado Perez
Narrated by: Caroline Criado Perez
Length: 9 hours 24 minutes

Invisible Women

“This book is as utterly fascinating as it is frustrating and eye-opening. I blew through it in a day and a half because I simply could not stop listening to it and appreciating with rising vexation Perez's breakdown of the data at every level of the world we live in today. This is a book I wish I could share with everyone and talk about to get the ball rolling on change.”

Mostly Dead Things

By Kristen Arnett
Narrated by: Jesse Vilinsky
Length: 10 hours 28 minutes

Mostly Dead Things

“After her father commits suicide, Jessa is tasked with saving her family’s taxidermy business from going bankrupt. She also has to take care of her family’s strange problems — including her mother’s affinity for turning their taxidermy into risqué works of art. Mostly Dead Things is a fun, eccentric book with a steamy lesbian romance, ongoing sibling rivalry, and dark confessions of a family that is willing to go the mile in order to make ends meet. Stuffed with humor, heartfelt moments, and some gritty bits, Arnett’s writing will make you laugh, cry, and wonder how an author’s first novel can be so engaging and well-written!”

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

Why Fish Don't Exist

“I've followed Lulu Miller's audio stories on public radio for years and I found Why Fish Don't Exist absolutely absorbing. Part memoir, part scientific deep dive into the life of David Starr Jordan (a taxonomist who discovered one-fifth of the fish known to humans), Why Fish Don't Exist examines order and chaos in the world with humor and deep personal insight.”

White Tears/Brown Scars

How White Feminism Betrays Women of Color

By Ruby Hamad
Narrated by: Mozhan Marnò
Length: 7 hours 2 minutes

White Tears/Brown Scars

“This book could not have come at a better time as a vital contribution to antiracist and intersectional feminist literature. Hamad is extremely thorough in her examination of white feminism and its long history of weaponization against BIPOC. This work is accessible to newcomers to these topics, and illuminating for those who have some background in these discussions. Hamad shows us how deep the betrayal of white feminism goes, into politics, the media, and our interpersonal relationships, so that we might call it out and stop it in its tracks.”

The Deep

By Rivers Solomon, Daveed Diggs, William Hutson & Jonathan Snipes
Narrated by: Daveed Diggs
Length: 4 hours 1 minutes

The Deep

“Solomon is perfectly suited to expand the concept of a civilization of merfolk whose origins were born in the violence of pregnant African women sent to the depths from the vessels of white slave traders. The Deep focuses on Yetu, whose role as historian is to be individually burdened with six centuries of memories of all the wajinru (merfolk), and the consequences when she abdicates her responsibility. With shades of Hans Christian Andersen, Ursula Le Guin, and Lois Lowry, plus inimitable explorations of difficult social interrelationships, Solomon’s short tome is, indeed, a deep read.”

Putney

A Novel

By Sofka Zinovieff
Narrated by: Michelle Ford
Length: 11 hours 49 minutes

Putney

“Putney reads as if Lolita had been written by a 21st century woman at the height of the #MeToo zeitgeist, only better. Balancing three points of view - victim, abuser and witness - Putney is a stunningly thought-provoking novel, sometimes uncomfortably so. It's also beautifully well-written, thoroughly human and obsessively compelling. Highly recommended.”
