Saving Reading, featuring Andrew Limbong

Jan 9, 2023

Andrew Limbong

Should we be worried about the current state of reading? It’s hard to answer no to this question. Which is why Grant and Brooke take up the topic this week with guest Andrew Limbong, host of NPR’s Book of the Day podcast. Tune in to set a reading goal with Grant, commiserate with Brooke about the kids’ reading habits these days, and hear some great book recommendations from a guest who’s more on top of the book scene than most. We also talk about the reading brain vs. Internet brain, and throw in a little neuroscience for good measure. Join us!


Andrew Limbong started at NPR in 2011 as an intern for All Things Considered, and he is now a reporter for NPR’s Arts Desk, where he does pieces on anything remotely related to arts or culture, from streamers looking for mental health on Twitch to Britney Spears’ fight over her conservatorship. He’s also the host of NPR’s Book of the Day podcast and a frequent host on Life Kit.
