Michael L.G. ,

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.

Libraryknight ,

A good time

Thanks for making this! It was really fun. I knew I would enjoy the roasting of the bad stories, but I was surprised at how delightful it was when the hosts discovered good literature.

Can't wait to hear more amc ,

More, many more!!

Such a great show. Such great chemistry, funny, silly, thoughtful, intelligent, all good!
