Fun podcast

Entertaining and a cool dive into the dime novel and pulp world. Nice job!!

The only podcast I listen to the day it comes out

Love this podcast for its smart, funny take on men’s adventure fiction and a sprinkling of horror. From James Bond to Mack Bolan and beyond (and below), it’s all here

An offshoot of the website, these two read and review an incredible number of books every year, and have taken to the podcast waves to share features, reviews, book-buying tips and and ventures, and some dad jokes

They also do some digging, original research and interviews into authorship and authors, which is always interesting to hear about

Plus, they both seem like nice, decent guys, which is a breath of fresh podcast air :)

Excellent and Informative

This is a very informative show for any interested in vintage paperbacks and their authors. Great biographical details are incorporated with insights on specific novels and helpful tips on collecting.
