In each episode, Merritt and Belmont discuss books they've read in their book club, and share some online responses from other members of the club. The show also has a dragon mascot named Lem (short for "Lord Bookwyrm Lem of Swaser," named in a viewer contest). Regular segments also include "Quick Burns", "This Day in Alternate History", a Calendar of upcoming book releases, and author interviews. In 2014, Sword & Laser began making some of the Google Hangout Videos of recording sessions available as a livestream and on YouTube.
