ABOUT THE SHOW
The Newest Olympian is a podcast covering the journey of Mike Schubert, a grown man who has never read a single page of a Percy Jackson novel. Each week, he is joined by longtime PJO fans to cover the plot, take stabs at what happens next, and nerd out over Greek mythology. Whether you're looking for an excuse to finally read these books, or want to re-read an old favorite with a digital book club, grab your blue chocolate chip cookies and listen along. As of November 2023, the podcast has amassed over 5,350,000 total downloads.
