Inspirational listen

Casual, funny, motivational and insightful podcast - love the mix of guests, from those who read A LOT to those who read less (but have interesting recommendations) and first and foremost, book recommendation that inspire me to want to read those books!

Such an excellent literary podcast

This podcast is such a good idea and I love the questions Phoebe asks. It spreads such a good message of free-from-judgement book choices and recommendations. A tonic in a world of pretentious literary conversations who always seem to have the same guests! Thanks phoebe!

So far loving this podcast, can’t wait to hear the rest of the season! Getting desert island vibes in the best way possible
