Gets Better All The Time

LOVED the Nancy Drew segment! So interesting to think about how or even if we can still relate to The characters and plots. Never thought I’d be the least bit interested but I might actually do a reread.

A wonderful podcast

How much do I love this podcast!? A ton! I love mysteries and true crime, and these two book lovers locate and describe so eloquently some of the best mysteries out there. They are young and hip book lover/librarians, not old and stodgy stereotypical mystery lovers, and they explore all kinds of mysteries- from cozy to dark to thriller to fantasy- the way they describe them, I want to read them all. I’m forever grateful to this duo for their enthusiasm for the Widows of Malabar Hill- what a great book!! Thank you Book Riot for devoting a podcast to mysteries and for employing Katie and Rincey to curate it.

Like I really like wanted to like this like podcast

The content is great. I love hearing about new books and all. But seriously, these women are unable to utter a sentence without saying like or um 15 times. And they are always saying things like "oh, I am sorry I am not prepared I didn't write down the release date". You knew you were recording this podcast ahead of time. You can't be bothered to take some notes about the subject you're talking about? I just don't know if I can stomach these two for another second but I so wanted to love this podcast because I love the genre and it really has potential if you get rid of these too unprofessional people who clearly don't even care to do their jobs.
