More Rebecca Please
I like this podcast except for Jeff’s mansplaining. Let Rebecca speak! Her work is good- it doesn’t need editing.
Great book news
A favorite listen, we can’t wait for the Lonesome Dove read-along!
I grow weary. Every topic seems to be coming from a political angle. I just want to hear about books. I used to love this show. I try and listen now and end up turning it off. If I wanted to be bombarded with political nonsense I would listen to CNN.
