Banned Camp is a comedy podcast where we read banned books and try to figure out why they were banned in the first place.
Each season, we pick a new banned book, read it chapter by chapter out loud, and then talk about what might have gotten that chapter banned.
In our sixth season, one thing that has stood out to us is that it seems like the people who want to ban books have never read them. Although we can find specific things here and there, nothing ever comes to the point where we would call it ban-worthy.
Overall, we think banning books is pretty stupid, but we continue our quest nonetheless.
Join the fun as we explore why some folks seem to be in such a rush to take us back to the dark ages, one banned book at a time.
We’ve covered books like "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury, "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain, and "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeleine L’Engle.
This season, we're diving into “Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe” by Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

By reading books like these, we can find answers to important questions like:
Why are banned books important?
What does "banned books" mean?
What does "challenged" books mean?
How does banning books affect students?
What is the most banned book?
How do book bans work?
Should book banning be allowed?
Are book bans constitutional?
Which books are banned in the US?
What is the most challenged book of all time?
