The music is irritating

Back catalogue??

Now us the ideal time to catch up with episodes of the R&J Bookclub and collect new listeners but the back catalogue has disappeared. There’s plenty of other book review podcasts so I’ll be unsubscribing from this one and subscribing elsewhere. Whoever is in charge of marketing should be fired.

Where have all the podcasts gone?!

Where have the all the interviews with authors & Richard & Judy’s comments & reviews gone? There’s still a link on the website. Inconceivable that a podcast is offered with no back catalogue.And only two podcasts to listen to. Will unsubscribe if no more appear.
