Friends for a pandemic

I LOVE this podcast! I discovered it a month ago and an almost through the more than 100 episodes. These ladies have made me feel less alone during the pandemic and have given me the gift of a renewed excitement for reading. I love the diversity of advice we get from Meredith and Kaytee, the kind but opinionated back and forth, and the really practical tips! Thanks to them I’ve mastered the art of the online library system. Thank you, love the format and you guys!
