Certified Fresh podcast

I don't have much time to read and this podcast motivated me within a few episodes to pick up a book again. Full of stories, playful anecdotes, witty remarks, fantastic reviews, insightful interviews, and professional responses from an actual librarian. This podcast covers everything. Full disclosure, I have known Dave and Andrew since Middle school. No one tells a story better than Dave and no on delivers a dead pan witty response better than Andrew. Laura is the creamy frosting on the cupcake, with her sonorous voice and the best recommendations. Highly recommend this podcast to save time searching for your next book. Audiobooks, fiction, horror, noir, all genres except for non-fiction are covered. The trio has me hooked and searching the library for their recommended books. I look forward to each new episode. Excelsior!
