Delightful!

As a book lover since childhood, this podcast speaks to me on a cellular level. The conversations Diane has with her guests dig deep into our childhood favorites and explore how books shape our lives. The conversations are fun, illuminating, and nostalgic. All good things!

One of my favorite podcasts!

Diane and her guests really hit you with those good feelings of amazing childhood memories! So many of the episodes have m reminiscing about these amazing characters I read as a child, but have also introduced me to so many I wish I had known! Each episode has been a delight to listen to and I look forward to each new one!
