Love Roxanne’s Interviews

I don’t typically read non-fiction but after listening to a few episodes, through her thoughtful, funny and insightful interviews Roxanne has totally converted me. These intimate conversations are thought provoking as they are pleasant, I so enjoy listening to Roxanne get the inside story from the authors even when I don’t always plan on reading their books, it’s always a great listen!
