    489: The NOs of Books

    In this episode, we share listener-submitted nos of books. Some stories leave a plot to be desired, so join us as we debate if listening to an audiobook counts as reading, if bonnet rippers are a green light or a gateway, and if you should, in fact, judge a book by its cover.

#1 Green-Light

Long-time listener, newish BFOT here to say that PMG are in a league of their own. My husband recently asked, “how many shows do those people put out?” after hearing their familiar voices following me around the house multiple times each week. Answer: Not enough. The Popcast is my absolute favorite listen and we’ve finally hit a point in my household where it’s no longer questioned who I’m referring to when I name drop Knox and Jamie in casual conversation. They not only create fantastic content, but are truly delightful people - each episode feels like time well-spent in great conversation with friends. Not to mention their green lights list is the holy grail of entertainment recommendations. Big thanks to the PMG team for creating a trusted space for light-hearted entertainment and joy - y’all are the best!

Don’t agree on everything (LOST), but…

Recently discovered and currently working through their archive - I’m hooked! I adore them even though they convinced me to watch Lost - WOOF! 5% Distracted Radishes after like episode 3. I really do love y’all, though!

Differing opinions bring me joy

Case in point: Clown music over astrological talk gets me every time.
