good conversations!

Josh Olds is obviously passionate about books but what i really like is that he has a real conversation with the authors instead of pushing his own agenda about what the narritive is.

Glad this show is back!

Love hearing the reviews, (full disclosure I love the text reviews as well) and all the interviews- though the Larry the Cucumber intro was a little bizarre.❤️

I’ve skipped around a bit- I don’t know everyone featured, and my attention span fights with me, I need to go back and finish.🤔

Josh is at it again!

Life is Story as a whole is deeply vested in bringing underrated stories to the forefront for everyone to enjoy with in-depth reviews. I’m so psyched that Josh is doing this podcast!
