Show notes?

Love this podcast, but would love it if the episode webpage listed every book mentioned, not just the sponsors. Just listened to the armchair travel ep, but was on a bike ride so couldn’t make my own notes. Maybe this already exists, but if so, not user friendly enough. 🤷‍♀️

I love Reading Lives

The Reading Lives format is awesome. I love those so much and wish I could access the archives.

Love this podcast

I was a regular listener of this podcast years ago and truth be told I fell of it for no other reason than my commute time dropped and I happened upon other pods. However, I just came back to it and was reminded how much I love it. Perfect mix of book news and other stuff. Love the hosts’ rapport. I’m always adding books to my TBR list from it. Very relaxing to listen to when stressed.
