Fun and entertaining

I always enjoy the interactions between the hosts. They make my day better. Plus I learn about writers and books from diverse settings.

feeling good with crime

I am a reader of both these guys’ books, but I would enjoy listening to them regardless. They are so amiably snarky and just plain interesting. I haven’t been listening in order, but jump around according to my mood and who their guest is. And those guests! If you like crime fiction, there’s something here for you.

Great listening

These two are great fun to listen to as they talk about their favourite movies, books and misc. They are great interviewers and have interesting guests.
