Like an on demand book club

I’ve loved participating in book clubs over the years and this podcast is a nice way to engage similar parts of my brain/memories in a flexible on demand sort of way. Cheers to the hosts 🙌

Spoilers for OTHER BOOKS

Totally cool that episodes contain spoilers for the books under discussion, but y’all need to give spoiler warnings before revealing major plot points of other books!

I think you may have just spoiled Never Let Me Go for a bunch of people :(

Refreshing Familiarity

Having always enjoyed discussions on literature, this podcast brings me back to memories of English classes. Having the choice to participate in such conversations, rather than be forced to for a grade, is a breath of fresh air. I’ll be making my way through their backlog and perhaps try and read their next scheduled book. Highly would recommend!
