Omg

I haven’t even listened to a whole episode but the anchor intro sound reminded me of my anchor podcast game review

my fav podcast

I’ve been listening to quite a few podcasts lately and this one is by far my favorite. The content is thought provoking, funny, relatable, and always entertaining. I’ve loved getting to hear my favorite books discussed from the perspectives of others- both to learn new ideas and say “YES” when someone says something i’ve always thought while reading these books. This podcast is such a gem and i’m so glad I found it.

My favorite podcast atm

This is the perfect podcast i’ve been searching for. Adults with degrees and education who discuss children’s books? Nothing could be better. Ive been dying to geek over the PJO universe and this podcast is the perfect place. Erica and Carter are such smart, witty, and funny hosts. Their special guests never cease to disappoint. Hot takes are thrown and tears are shed. I cannot express enough how obsessed I am.
