What’s the deal… new episodes?

I miss this podcast!

ozzie book addict ,

When are you coming back?

I really miss this podcast. The old episodes are nice. But I’m missing current content. Come on folks how long can it take? I miss Pamela Paul and John Williams, but surely someone else can temporarily do the podcast? Dwight Garner comes to mind.

vieille dame ,

What is the problem why are we waiting so long?

I have loved this podcast and now it has disappeared could you share with us what you are disputing and what is the debate that’s causing this delay?
