Interesting Stories About Books

I binge listened to the entire Behind the Bookshelves collection for the past month or so on my commutes to work.

Richard is a great host and asks interesting questions to his guests on those episodes.

I find a lot of the topics interesting and I learn something from each episode.

I would give it a full 5/5 stars but my one gripe is the mixing of the audio. Some episodes are really loud and some are really quiet. Also some of the interview episodes Richard is really loud compared to the interviewee audio and it’s frustrating to turn the volume up and down the whole time.

Fun, short episodes

I love this podcast for its truly interesting topics - the Savoy Cocktail Book, office sheds, CIA plots - and I appreciate the fact that they’re short.
