Top Notch

Material of the highest quality, that garners for the recipient a furthered intellectual, emotional and spiritual development. BM is a veritable Hardcore Literature bodhisattva. Most excellent. Much appreciated. Many thanks.

Favourite literature podcast of all time

A podcast that dives into many great works in the most beautiful and thought provoking manner. I always come away with new gems of wisdom and have fallen back in love with literature. It feels like you are in conversation with a close and wise friend, learning not only about the great works but also about yourself and life, would highly recommend both this podcast and the Hardcore literature bookclub on Patreon!
