Informed by classics; Motivated by a love of the series.

Emily and Phoebe are able to embed great literary analysis among comfortable conversation between friends, and their chemistry and extensive knowledge make for a great listen every time. This is one of my few “drop everything and listen when an episode drops” podcasts.

To anyone who read these books as a kid, I can’t recommend this pod highly enough!

Walker??

Is it possible that you guys could have Walker Scobell on as a guest again??

Love it!
