Excellent show

This is a good blend of recommendations and discussions with authors or others in the romance genre or podcast world. I look forward to listening to the episode each week.

Love to listen

Jeff and Will are so charming and I love their interviews. They ask interesting questions and their voices are so friendly that I could listen forever.

Happy Listening Walker ,

Wonderful, charming, funny podcast

Jeff and Will are enthusiastic and intelligent readers and writers of romance, so their interviews are clever, interesting, and always charming and fun to listen to. I learn about books I wouldn't have encountered otherwise, and I always come away from an episode having learned about a new book or author, or a new way of looking at the mm romance genre. They're witty and ebullient, and their love of the genre and each other and their community make this podcast a joy to listen to. Cannot more highly recommend.
