I love Covered

I love how complete and thorough Harry's conversations are with his fellow writers. This is a great podcast for those out there who want fresh perspective and new leads on books that might not necessarily come their way: the small press gems and unusual books a true literary type craves!

Fantastic For Book Lovers and Creatives of All Types

I stumbled across this podcast through the Erasable Podcast and I am so glad I did. Mr. Marks is such a perfect host for this type of show. He’s a fantastic interviewer who always comes into each podcast well-prepared and knowledgeable about the books written by the interviewee. The show flows so well and is just a joy to listen to. I really feel like I am sitting there with him as they have great conversations. Each show not only makes me want to check out new books but also inspires me to be more creative myself. Fantastic work Mr. Marks!
