The Brook Reading Podcast


Dec 28, 2018

On Episode 39 of Brook Reading, I discuss “Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin.  I reveal the information provided me by my listener, John, regarding Mortenson and the Central Asia Institute (thank you so much for that!), and share the regrettable news of Mr. Relin’s passing.  I also rant about sexist comments on Twitter, and share a promo from my friends at the Invasion of the Remake Podcast! Stay tuned for Episode 40, my New Year’s Eve episode, where I will also tie up loose ends on “Three Cups of Tea”.
