Grimm SQUEEKER ,

What could you possibly bleep?

I have been a fan of Terry Pratchet for years, and I enjoyed listening two of his other fans discussing his stories.

One question, I just listened to E7, and couldn’t guess what may have been bleeped?

Startryst ,

Discworld fans will love this glorious podcast!

I’m a huge fan! I love listening to the hosts talk about the books as well as their perspectives on “Roundworld” subjects. I find the hosts very relatable and so for me it feels like I’m sitting in on a conversation with close friends. 10/10 would recommend to anyone (except under the context of “family-friendly” 😆😆😆)

CherylPj ,

I love the banter.

While I came to this podcast because I love Terry Pratchett, it is the banter before the book discussion that keeps me here. I enjoy the tangents as well as the book discussion. Well worth a listen. And I’m pretty sure I know what word was bleeped in episode 7. Well done that.
