Fantastic podcast for book lovers

Do you like books? Do you like smart people talking about books they enjoy? Book Society is fantastic - you’ll walk away knowing more about books you already love and wanting to read the ones you haven’t encountered yet. Lucas and his guests cover all genres, and every episode is great!
