My Go To Podcast While Doing the Dishes

Five stars because I thought I was the only one who liked the ST: TNG episode The Royale. I love this podcast. When I was a stay at home dad I used to browse the library while my daughter napped in the stroller. This is like an audio version of that experience! I’d linger around the sci-fi, graphic novels, and media tie-in sections but still poke around the new releases. This podcast makes me regret all the Smallville novels I gave away without reading. Thanks for the fun show!

Everything I want to know about upcoming books I've learned from this podcast, plus new info that I never would've known otherwise. Listening to this podcast is one of my most looked forward to hours of the week. It's not just a library podcast, it's for all book lovers. I definitely recommend it!
