Phi Fic is our monthly conversation on recommended fiction. We dive into the plot, characters, philosophy, ideas, and best lines, in a discussion full of SPOILERS! Nathan Hanks hosts fellow readers Cezary Baraniecki, Daniel St. Pierre, Laura Davis and Mary Claire, with the occasional guest. Thanks to Christopher Nolen for the music. Phi Fic is a member of the Partially Examined Life podcast network, and originated as the Philosophical Fiction group in PELs Not School.
