Pieces of wisdom sprinkled in with discussion of books

We are all time poor and I am very careful about what I curate into my regular podcast-listening roster. Very glad I have made and kept room for 3 Books with Neil Pasricha. This podcast is for anyone who loves reading and books, anyone who is fascinated by other people's stories, anyone who knows that true pieces of wisdom are few and far between. Most of Neil's guests deliver all three. My husband and I have changed what we eat as a result of reading Gary Taubes' Why We Get Fat (recommended by Gretchen Rubin) and I am very grateful Neil has put together this wonderful podcast which has, in this way, helped change my life for the better (thank you Neil!). Do yourself a huge favour and give this podcast a listen.

A book lover’s new best friend

Loving this show! It’s only 6 episodes old as I write this, so I’m looking forward to the next 327. Great idea, a great way to pick your next book. Seth Godin episode is a clear standout. Strongly recommend adding this show to your weekly listening, a good companion to another book podcast I love called ‘What You Will Learn’ which also features Seth Godin.

Only downside... haaaate the ‘special two ear format’. I get the idea behind it, it makes sense, but the stereo format is something that would normally turn me off a show (can’t listen with just one ear, feels like it messes with me brain, and I’d forgive them if abandoned it).
