Ali Rat ,

Love it but a new episode would be cool

Please come back soon
ex oh

Jakalangelo ,

:/

really wanted to like this podcast. i’ve tried to get into it on and off again over the years. their hearts are in the right place and i haven’t found another podcast that tries to cover as many weekly books but i just can’t stand how much this dude throws “ahhh um”after every 4 words he says and if they didn’t spoil every recommendation they put out i might be able to experience those books properly. Siobhan seems better spoken with a more interesting (closer to mine) taste in books. If she ever did this with someone else and they had someone to clean the audio up i’d absolutely give that a shot

Pandalicious is delicious and totally malicious ,

Great show!!

Big fan of the show. The new format is fantastic with monthly reviews of comics that the hosts genuinely want to discuss.

If you want recommendations for great comics that are on the stands right now, start listening!
