Four

This would be a 5 star but for 2 things. First, it’s to short. I think interviews with authors need a full hour. Second, I think a seasoned interviewer/host alongside the ladies would be helpful to drive the show and have questions from a different perspective. Otherwise, I love it, I love the information given and the choice of who they talk with or interview. Good show, could be great.
