Looking for advice as to how you would break up the book into manageable lengths for a podcast review. We did the first book by the chapter breaks and had five episodes of about an hour covering approximately 50 pages.

Drawing of the Three has many more chapters, but on the other hand, we don't want to have 18 episodes for this book. Any suggestions are welcome. And take a listen to our series.

....to make it "manageable" you would have to summarize essentially the "drawings" and leave the esoterica to fend for itself.....

Just based off how you handled the first book, go with anywhere from 6 to 9 episodes. It's been a while but I think the book can be broken up into three-three act models. Ehhh more or less. Not knowing doodley about your podcast I don't really know how your show time is allocated. Personally I like three episodes for three doors; Eddie, Odetta, and then the wrap up, or whatever.
