The Yellow Dart ,

One of my favorites!

The host, Dave, is witty, well spoken, and Australian; what else could one want?

jinn169 ,

Less if a review more of a mindless chatting

If you are looking for a book review look somewhere elSe, this is more of a comedy , as described

mwa228 ,

Bring back the chook!

This is one of my favorite podcasts! Dave has a great way of contextualizing classics and describing each moment to make it come to life. Really hope he returns soon and releases a new podcast soon! Long live the book chook
