Fantastic Book Podcast

As an adult who recently became visually impaired, I have become increasingly reliant upon podcasts
to learn about new releases and interesting backlist titles I may have missed. Many book podcasts focus on fiction titles, which I read. But I also enjoy reading memoirs, biographies, contemporary culture surveys and history titles, all of which are discussed here. Kim and Alice have an easy and
engaging dynamic, and their enthusiasm for the nonfiction world is infectious. I appreciate how well
these podcasts are organized, with a section on new releases, another on book news, and a third on books concerning their topic for that podcast. I am constantly adding to my tbr list from their
recommendations, and I spend a fair amount of time reading (in audiobook format). I attend a monthly history book group and appreciate their timely, intriguing recommendations which I share with other members (and recommend the podcast as well!). Just and enjoyable, informative podcast with two terrific hosts. Thanks, Michelle

Great book leads

I love listening to For Real and am glad nonfiction books are getting their due. Plus, the hosts’ bookish banter is delightful.
