In this, the final episode for Season Seven of the Halfway Around the World podcast, Nathan and Jen bring you and eclectic mix of all kinds of things. As always, there is plenty of awesome podsafe music to enjoy. This episode also includes tons of book picks, and some very odd music news for you to ponder.
Halfway Around the World has seasons that consist of thirteen episodes. The show then goes on hiatus for a while. There will be a post, sometime in the future, to let you know what happens next. Stay tuned!
Halfway Around the World is sponsored by Audible. Instead of playing a sample of a book that is available at Audible, Jen and Nathan decided to suggest several books in “rapid fire”. Every book mentioned can be found at Audible. This should give you something to do while Halfway Around the World is on hiatus.
