Great feel-good podcast to brighten your week! Always enjoy listening and learning a thing or two in the process. The punny jokes are always a plus!
Funny. Informative. Easy on the ears.
I look forward to this podcast every week. The hosts are a joy to listen to and the content is fantastic. We all need some poetry in our lives and I highly recommend this podcast for your weekly dose of serendipity.
Entertaining, Informative, Thought-Provoking
I learn something every episode about poetry, word origins, and the joys and sorrows of life. The podcast is a 30-minute feel-good break in my day. Shaun and Bill interact effortlessly, and I look forward to each new lesson and corny joke and poignant poem!
