Love the podcast! Just found recently, went back and listen to past episodes. Very entertaining and informative. Can't get enough!

Shameless406 ,

Thank you

So I am a trucker in the US I am very glad that this is up because I run long hauls been looking for light novels audiobooks, unfortunately I haven’t found any good narrators that don’t sound so monotone or have a up beat sound to what they are reading. Still on the search for some good ones until then I’ll be tuning in!
