Rachieryan ,

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!

M.G.R.22 ,

Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

Fun podcast for book nerds. I enjoy listening to George force unsuspecting guests to examine their psyches. Would recommend for fans of literature, amateur psychology, and awkward conversations.
