Giggle

I agree with others, the giggling is almost too much to take.

Used to be better

I quite enjoyed the book discussions on this podcast when there was only one presenter interviewing the author. Now that there are two presenters they spend too much time chatting and giggling to the detriment of providing information about the books.

It's good, but....

I really enjoy the podcast, but it does come off as being a little pretentious at times, in that it doesn't reflect the everyday reading habits of the vast majority of listeners to the podcast. Comes off a little high brow at times.
