Hilarious and thoughtful

These days, it feels like few of the podcasts I listen to actually make me chuckle out loud - and so it was a pleasant surprise to smile and chuckle in the coffeeshop I was in while listening to this podcast for the first time. Max and Danielle are authentic, funny, and let their conversation steer them where it will, keeping the conversation accessible while also teaching us all a thing or two (or ten). Highly recommend!

Wow! Great Podcast!

This podcast is such an antidote for these dark times. Such a pleasure to listen to two people talk poetry in the most real and unpretentious ways. Thanks for helping make the world a brighter place!

A true listening pleasure!

I love everything about this podcast! The poetry selections are fresh and engaging, the topics are fascinating, the discussion is genuine, the personal stories are entertaining and relatable, the format and production are wonderfully refined... in short, excellent from start to finish. It leaves me pleasantly surprised and wanting more, impatiently awaiting the next episode week after week. What more can you ask from a podcast?
