My Favourite Podcast

I have been streamlining this podcast since I discovered it a month ago and every single episode is wonderful. It's like hanging out with your two best friends and talking about something you love. It's just wonderful.

I think you may enjoy reviewing the pirate fantasy romance Beneath Black Sails by Clare Sager, you know in five years when the bribe recommendation book well runs a bit dry.

BEST PODCAST EVER

This is absolutly the best podcast!! It is so good mel and erin are amazing!! I have been listening to it constantly for the last two weeks and I dread the day that I catch up and can no longer listen to the constant banter.

My St Vincent Stan Peoples!!

Recently found them because I’m team Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent. I was hooked from the Devil in Winter multi-part episode recap and their celebration of Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent. This pair makes me laugh so much when I’m listening to their recaps and banter. I’ve listened to all the episodes on books I’ve already read and have had so much fun pretending I’m their besties. The only downside is I have so much reading to catch up on so I can get what they’re talking about in all of the other episodes ♥️
