Reading great literature helps us understand history, society and the human condition. But more than that, it helps us understand ourselves.

The Better Read Than Dead (BRTD) book club podcast was launched by Generation Liberty to provide young Australians the opportunity to discuss the BEST LITERATURE to be ever written.

Join us as we examine what books and their authors can teach us about life, hope, vanity, grief, loss and love!

The Authors


How will BRTD work?

Each month a new BRTD podcast episode will be released featuring an in-depth conversation between the IPA’s Gideon Rozner and Chetna Mahadik on a new book. Generation Liberty members are encouraged to read and discuss this book for themselves. You will have the opportunity to engage and interact with other members and book lovers in discussions about the books, plots, characters, and stories through Facebook and Instagram.
