I love the discussions but

I have a technical complaint. Please equalize the sound levels - either make the vocals as loud as the music, or reduce the level of the music to the vocals.

Great literary podcast

This is an exceptional literary podcast and hands down one of my most favorite podcasts (of which there are quite a few). The hosts and guests are knowledgeable about their subject matter and the choice of reads is varied and wonderful. I have been introduced to so many great authors and books and am eternally grateful. Keep up the great work!!

A bookish podcast that thinks deep

Finally there's a lit podcast that isn't afraid to sound "intellectual" and dive into literary criticism in their discussions. That being said, Jake and Alex make big and complicated ideas understandable and easy on the ears - they remind me of those teachers or professors whose enthusiasm in the classroom is infectious and inspiring. Keep it up guys!
