Wish they would discuss spoilers.

I really enjoyed their discussions, but they tend to shy away from spoilers. I think the spoilers would lead to a deeper, more thoughtful, & more compehensive discussion.And example of this would be on the swampLandia episode,They shied away from some major plot points that they called spoilers but these episodes were the heart of the book. I think that if they post a podcast and a person hasnt finished the book yet, the person should avoid listening until they finish the book. then there would be no spoilers, & everyone wins :)

Great rapport among hosts!

I really liked the conversation among the two hosts! It really is like being at a bookclub and getting to delve deep into the story.
