RS Ny ,

The best

What’s up hot queens? This is an amazing show!!!! I frequently embarrass myself by laughing out loud to these two at work! Can’t recommend enough! :)

sonaatine ,

my favorite hot queens

this podcast has been my biggest source of joy lately—claribel and ryan are hilarious and this is the most yassified book club i have EVER had the pleasure of being a part of, sitting in a coat closet, girlbossing together :)

My favorite podcast

I am behind on so many podcasts, but this one I listen to as soon as a new episode drops. Claribel and Ryan are so funny and listening to these is like spending time with friends. And you can learn about writing, because literary analysis isn’t just for lit fic.
