This is just what I’ve been searching for. Great content, great atmosphere and great authors.

Like other reviewers this was recommended by David Butcher on the Radio Times podcast and I am so glad I followed his advice. One of my favourite podcasts - Philippa’s summary of the books and her interview style are perfect. Love it.
