Great podcast

Dani is a fabulous interviewer. She manages to soothe my anxiety with her interviews and is one of the best humans ever.

The very best podcast for books and reading

Dani is a consummate interviewer who understands exactly how to tease out the best stories from her guests. She knows books, she knows good writing, and she knows everyone, everywhere, so she gets the very best guests on. I never miss an episode and listen to many of them many times.

Really worth to sit and listen.

Dani is a great interviewer. Insightful and relaxed conversations like you're right there in the room with her and the interviewee. Dani knows the book back to front and knows the right questions to put to the author. She has a great showcase of interviews with some great authors.
