AvaniiG ,

So fun and awesome!

I love this podcast. The hosts are insightful and poignant without being overtly academic. They have a great vibe with each other and it’s always a fun listen. Some of their discussions are so hilarious that I have listened to the episodes multiple times! I’m always excited whenever they have a new episode out~ I hope they keep going! :)

You guys are awesome

I’ve loved Austen since I was in middle school (thanks mom) but Im definitely not an Austen purist. Thanks for letting me know that’s ok. Keep them coming!

Love this show!

I really appreciate having the perspective of a JAFF writer on media adaptations, so interesting. I also loved the JAFF cast episodes, I finished them last week and have already read Suddenly Mrs. Darcy, it was great. Thanks guys for being so great and helping me be a bit more analytical about adaptations!
