  1. Is Reading Odyssey a thing of the past? I just found the site and it looks like most of the works I’m interested in have been read and discussed. Is it possible to re-visit some them?

    • Still exists, although the Web site is not a focus. I don’t know about revisiting books in general, but there are recordings of many calls available on the site. It’s also possible we will revisit one or two books, such as Herodotus, but that’s not planned at the moment.
