Great content and knowledgeable host

I enjoy this show because it is slightly different than the other bookish shows I have listened to. I like the host’s faith-based approach and the variety of guests. She asks great questions and many of the deep-seated reasons we all read are uncovered. It’s a fantastic show and I look forward to hearing more!

Great concept and great style!

Love the concept of this show. And there’s a really cool style to the interviews. It feels both professional - like I’m getting a lot of out it, but also down to Earth and comfortable. Great show!
