Poorly Informed Podcast

I listened to several episodes of this podcast as I am always trying to find great podcasts over literature. These individuals cover different genres of literature but offer no information for listeners. They do not discuss tropes, elements or great authors in a particular genre. They just make up stuff off the top of their head. Most of them do not even read books from their chosen topic episode. You can only hear “So I read one page of this book...and this type of lit sucks” before you angrily stop listening. Self absorbed poorly researched hosts. A bad podcast.

Librarians FTW!

Long time listener, I’m just bad a ratings/reviews. That being said, I’ve really enjoyed how this podcast has evolved over the 2+ years. As a librarian, it’s nice to hear recommendations and ideas from an outside group. Keep up the great work!

Great Book Chat

SO bad for my TBR list. Bloating our the goodreads and library holds. Great conversations with young, informed people who have great insights into books that might be worth reading - even in genres that I wouldn’t automatically choose. Thank you all for being awesome and continuing to put our great episodes!!
