Goodreads Podcast: Elizabeth Chats with LeVar Burton

Posted by Cybil on November 15, 2018


In the latest episode of the Goodreads podcast Books of Your Life with Elizabeth, Goodreads cofounder Elizabeth Khuri Chandler talks with LeVar Burton, who inspired a generation of bookworms as host of PBS' Reading Rainbow for 23 years. Now he's running his own storytelling podcast, LeVar Burton Reads.

Chandler and Burton discussed books that have shaped his life, from Roots by Alex Haley to The Teachings of Don Juan series by Carlos Castaneda. Along the way, he spoke about his desire to live life as a “spiritual warrior,” personal accountability, and how shaken he is by the flexible nature of truth today.
