So Witty and Good!

Firstly, I'm ASTOUNDED that there aren't more reviews! Because this podcast is SO GOOD! Follow H.G. Wells in his time machine as he interviews literary figures throughout history! Filled to the brim with British wit, you'll keep tuning back in over and over again to find out -- who does he meet next?

So interesting!

I’m a sucker for anything connected to H.G. Wells and The Time Machine, but I really like how this show broke the mould. Instead of just interviewing the writers like an educational show, we wound up hearing what the authors’ personalities were like, including Wells, offering much better insight into their lives and works than just spewing biographical facts. The humour was well-placed, and no acting performance seemed forced, despite the strong characteristics of each writer. I love this show and hope it gets more attention in the future!
