Fun Recap Podcast for Book and TV Lovers

In the terrible time of Coronavirus and social distancing, I’ve been waiting for the LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE adaptation to drop from Hulu and it finally did! This podcast is the perfect recap podcast, going in depth on the themes laid out in each episode. The hosts have a fun banter and the guests are great—I love Taylor Jenkins Reid and the Bad on Paper podcast gals! And it’s really fun that the LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE author Celeste Ng pops in on every episode to provide context and background about the adaptation of her novel. This pod is a really bright spot in a tough time. It feels like a conversation with book and pop culture obsessed friends during a time when I wish I could be face to face with my own.
