A riot

Natalie and Robyn are a riot. As writers and readers they approach books from the inside, looking at how they work the way a mechanic might look at a car. A drunk mechanic. But still. Looking forward to the next episodes!

A great listen!

I love how easy and fun it is to listen to Natalie and Robyn! I especially like how they talk about the books - you can tell that they're authors, so they're experienced opinions really add to the discussion. It's great to find a podcast for us fantasy/sci-fi nerds - definitely will be a weekly listener!

Fun New Podcast!

So my boyfriend sent me this after he saw it on Twitter, and I was immediately intrigued! Nerds who drink and talk about books? Right up my alley. The first episode is full of fun discussion that really encourages listener participation. They ask challenging questions regarding the content, but in a way that doesn’t detract from the content. Both Robyn and Natalie are knowledgeable and very real! Can’t wait for future episodes!
