Necessary in your life

Tom and Veronica are smart, funny and cool. You pretty much just want to be and date them at the same time. Weird? Yes. Should you still listen to this podcast? Yes. They break down books, bring you news of the literary world and make you want to buy all the books. And I love them for that.
