Helpful and fun
I love the gossip, and I love the inclusion of discussion around personal writing experiences and I love that those things add to the overarching discussions around books they’ve read. Fantastic!
So glad you’re back!
I’m so glad this podcast is back. I’ve listened to a lot of book podcasts in my time but this is one of only two I’ve stuck with, and I missed it so much these past few months. I was worried you’d never be back! So thanks so much for not only returning, but doing more frequent episodes too! Amazing work!
Excellent Podcast but awful audio
