One of my favorite podcasts

This show is like listening to a fun, insightful conversation about books and culture. I always learn something and get some great book recommendations!

Good- has the potential to be great

I’ve loved all of the guests and I really enjoy hearing about their favorite books. However, It sometimes feels like George gets in his own (and the guest’s) way. As a fan, I would make the suggestion that George prepare a bit better for the book choices. I realize it’s impractical to suggest he read every book but Spark notes, plot summaries… anything. It’s a great concept for a podcast and I will definitely continue to listen.
