Keepin’ It Cultured

I love Kelly & Katai from Teen Creeps and always enjoy hearing their discussion around works of capital a Art. I’m so glad this is a podcast all its own, because honestly I can’t get enough of their content. Their choices of public domain reads is diverse and interesting. First they kept it creepy, now they’re keeping it cultured. LOVE.

Love it!

They are so funny and as an added bonus I end up hearing of new authors to read! I have a Sherwood Anderson book from the library now because of their amazing read-through of “The Egg.” I first listened to this because of their episode reading Virginia Woolf and through this heard of their podcast Teen Creeps, which has become my favorite podcast.
