Fabulous!!!

I absolutely love this podcast as the hosts are entertaining and educational. Sometimes I laugh out loud no matter where I am. Very enjoyable! I hope to meet them one day.

Super podcast

As a woman of a 'certain age', I love this podcast. The two of you are great fun and full of information as are your guests. I actually used your story about restoring the Winnie the Pooh characters in a short radio play ;-) I do however have one complaint--the new branding logo; the other one was so much more original and fun. This one doesn't tell me anything about the show.

Fun for librarians and book lovers

The hosts are fun and engaging. As a librarian I enjoy it because I can learn about books and hear other librarian’s stories without feeling like I am working. It is so entertaining!
