Great companion

This podcast has been a little treat every Monday morning for me. I actually think it’s refreshing hearing from people who haven’t read the books, you hear some interesting perspectives even if you don’t fully agree with them. I hope you guys continue with the second season, it sounds like you have fun creating these podcasts, I definitely enjoy listening.

I love listening to this podcast and I am a massive his dark materials fan! I really enjoy the interviews and the inner dæmons part at the end!

Special Podcast

This podcast has been brilliant. It has been like going to book club and hearing all the discussions about a favourite book. The guests were excellent and really added another dimension. I was interested in Louisa’s take on things considering she hadn’t read any of the books.
Please can you do more podcasts with each season of His Dark Materials.
Thank you it has been a real treat.
