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.

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.

Finally "get" the podcast obsession

I have spent years hearing people talk about their podcast obsessions and I tried listening to all kinds - science, true crime, books, Sherlock Holmes, all my interests. Never got through a complete episode of any of them. Then, somehow stumbled on this one this weekend and have done nothing but binge listen as I have gone about my day. So excited to see there were 194 episodes of goodness to get through! Love their book recommendations - by TBR pile is increasing by leaps and bounds. They are the best interviewers of authors I have heard. They ask all the questions a fan would want to ask and also have the broad background to ask those questions we didn't know we wanted to. You can tell they have read the books they talk about. A top notch production all around, complete with all the information you need to find the books and the authors' websites and social media accounts.
