So witty and charming. Great company and fun discussions one can play along at home with. Really enjoying the episodes for the books I haven’t read too, just makes me want to go out and read them.

Hilariously witty

A great listen, really enjoyed the ‘Circe’ review and actor choices! Had more than a few chuckles along the way and thought the trio bounce off each other brilliantly! Bravo, more required (books I’ve read please!)
