Really great show.

Listening to this podcast is like watching a Richard Linklater film. The conversations are rambly and strange and always interesting, even when they veer away from books. No one’s trying to show off, no one’s trying to create a persona or a brand, there are no hot takes, Robin and Josie are just genuinely curious and thoughtful people. This is such a lovely mental health break. Also, the Patreon extended version is worth it if you like the shorter version.

Brilliant!

I can't get enough of these two. The chemistry they have with all of their guests is amazing. It just feels like friends sitting around chatting. Bonus: My reading list has quadrupled!

An always engaging charmer.

Robin and Josie are stand up comedians and insatiably curious readers. Every week they introduce you to wonderful new authors and reacquaint you with old forgotten favorites. Always engaging.
