Podcast Kiddo ,

Amazing

It’s a great podcast, spooky but entertaining

Cups of Night ,

The best

Best analysis out there, regardless of genre. Get exposed to so many authors/stories that I otherwise never would be aware of.

Relsh ,

Unparalleled quality

The best literary criticism out there. The hosts are mature, respect the audiences intelligence, value their time, and bring a great perspective and academic insight into each work they review.
