Intelligent, witty & fun

An insightful and enjoyable critical analysis of YA texts and their influence. The hosts are a delight and have a wealth of varied experience and perspective. Although they take all topics seriously, and must put in long hours of work, there is fun and joy to the episodes.
I truly look forward to this every week. I especially appreciate the continued conversations and recognition around diversity, class and gender.
