Apothekatie ,

Great podcast

Never really listened to a podcast of my own choosing before (all others have been listening in on whatever my husband is listening to), but I blasted through all of the 34 episodes available in record time. I had so much fun listening to the Lindseys. They make it very light and fun and personable while still getting to all of the topics that they need to cover for the podcast (sometimes in a very roundabout way- which I love because that is how my brain works). I now have a huge list of new authors that I want to check out, so I am pretty excited about that. Thank you LP and LF for the entertainment and I am looking forward to the next one!

Fun

Great podcast. I started listening this morning and am already on episode 3! I’ve added several books to my To Read list.

TarahBenzy ,

Love these ladies!

Two indie authors interview other authors about their books and the books they’re reading. If you are a bookworm, this is a great podcast to listen to. One episode in, I’m already adding to my must-read list. :)
