So good!

Love this show, and everything it stands for! I’m constantly adding books to my list based on their recommendations. Definitely give this one a listen!

Fabulous conversations!

I found out about this podcast a month or two ago and am so glad I did. They have reviewed some of my recent favorites and have inspired me to read new titles as well. I also appreciate hearing the publication news. The conversations are lovely, often informative, and always fun. I highly recommend this bookish podcast with an Asian American focus. Who can resist a book club? Not me.

Great conversations + recommendations

I started listening to this podcast sometime in late 2019 and am almost up-to-date (having started chronologically)! As a fellow literary enthusiast with a background in academia, I wonder if it’s worth considering bringing in graduate students or professors in for discussions on how - and if - these books are taught in classes. I know much of the content is focused on book news/media + reflections on the material, but other institutional examinations might be worthy topics of exploration.
