Unique and informative

This is a great podcast that provides information about children and young adult literature. I really enjoy the host's interaction with each guest. It gives insight into each author's background as well as work. Also, it shows that important points can be made within a short amount of time. Too many podcasts drag on for an hour and say nothing. The host entertains and informs within 10 minutes.

Too many technical glitches

I would love to listen to these. The content sounds amazing and informative; however, the podcast starts over every few minutes and makes it impossible to get past the first few minutes of the interview.

Love it but huge technical glitch

Aaargh. I so enjoy hearing these authors and illustrators talking about their creative process. The interviewers clearly have done their research and ask great questions. But on so many of these stories in the middle it suddenly goes back to the beginning. And it’s almost impossible to get back to the right spot. Have not had this problem on any other podcast. A really weird poltergeists glitch. Please fix it.
