Wonderful

I have listened to many podcasts on Books - this one is delightful, interesting, educational. As an older adult (73) I enjoy podcasts where the interviewer is mature, calm and has read the material he is discussing. The choice of books is expansive and well chosen.

Great Conversations

Sam asks good questions (most of which I never thought of). I've enjoyed listening and getting new book recommendations.

excellent, informative, relaxed interviews with authors

If you enjoy listening to authors talk in depth about their novels and their writing process as I do, then you will want to subscribe to this podcast. Sometimes I listen to the first few minutes of the podcast to determine if I think that I will enjoy readng the book and then save the rest of the podcast until after I finish as Sam Hankin really gets into each book with the author. And he is so friendly and relaxed yet still incredibly detailed about the book. Mostly fiction books are discussed, but some non fiction as well. Podcasts are usually somewhere between 30- 55 minutes in length. Definite recommendation. Michelle
