Fav Podcast 📚

I look forward to their podcast every month. Because of their on-air perspectives and conversations about certain books, I've explored authors and genres I had never considered.
And besides that, they are just happy, delightful women. The kind of energy the world needs more of! đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ‘đŸ»
