For readers looking for a podcast

I’m happy to listen to almost any bookish podcast, but this is The Best One. Some others I even love...sometimes, but they are up and down. Gwen and Frank are grownups, and as a forty-something longtime reader, it is important that the people I listen to have some context. And librarians have the BEST context. When they digress, it is about big ideas, or non-book recs, but always appropriate. I get good ideas for things to read but I also hear about books I don’t want to read but am glad to know about. I feel a little nervous that when I next visit NYC (I live in Maine) I might be a little fan girly. Time will tell. Thanks, Gwen and Frank. OH and also the poetry episode was definitely hands down one of the best episodes of anything ever. I listened on the way to work (High school principal) and it changed my day. Thanks, again. M.

LOVE this podcast

I always learn something new and get great book recommendations.
Gwen and Frank’s exchanges are entertaining and at times silly.
Props to their producer also!!

Favorite podcast!

I love the banter, the book talk, and the things that Gwen and Frank get me to think about. I look forward to each episode. Smart and so hilarious!
