Librarians FTW!

Long time listener, I’m just bad a ratings/reviews. That being said, I’ve really enjoyed how this podcast has evolved over the 2+ years. As a librarian, it’s nice to hear recommendations and ideas from an outside group. Keep up the great work!

Can'tPickEm ,

More research, fewer assumptions

I love the idea of reading from every genre, especially those one hates, but the hosts don’t even research before drawing conclusions. You don’t have to like a genre to be knowledgeable about it. I appreciate the one host who consistently brings the conversation back to “what would I recommend to someone who asked for this genre?”

MHP52 ,

I always look forward to it

I’ve listened to every single episode, and many times this is my podcast of choice to keep downloaded for re-listening on plane flights or to fall asleep to. The wait for a new episode seems so long but makes it extra exciting when two weeks goes by! They feel like friends from listening so long, they give me new ideas about what to read, and give me a glimpse into the life of a librarian
