Love it

Very nice contrast to the book podcasts filled with breathless agents who uncritically love everything that comes out.

Definitely not a member of the podcast

Excellent podcast, good train listen, can’t wait to see who inevitably cracks and murders the others

Heroic Brick Road ,

The #1 podcast officially sponsored by books

The best mix of sex, presidents, and books that could ever be. Actually, they don’t talk about presidents much, and they don’t really talk much about sex either. Usually they talk about books, but not always. Also they aren’t really yaks (or babies), but if they were literal yaks: 6 stars!
