Books can shape how we think, love and live.



The Spine is a podcast featuring interviews with writers about their reading lives, with a new episode each Tuesday. Every writer began as — and still is — a reader. And like many readers, they have been changed and challenged, comforted and inspired by books. This is where they tell that story.



The creator and host of The Spine, Gail Marie, approaches each interview reader-to-reader. She does not ask guests about the books they've written, where they get their ideas, whether they prefer a pen to a keyboard, or if they'd share their best bit of writing advice. Instead, she leads each writer through their "reading autobiography."
