So much fun

Love the podcast!!!

It is ok

I would like to rate this higher but after listening to it for awhile I have a few issues. First, Trisha rambles quite a bit. She tries to make a point but repeats the same idea in several different ways over and over, plus she digresses so much while talking that it is almost painful to listen to sometimes. She seems like a lovely and charming individual but I wish she would be more succinct and to the point. My other issue is that they recommend the SAME authors every single podcast. I would prefer to see more breadth and depth when it comes to authors and titles.

Good show, but could use some refining

I typically really enjoy this podcast but I feel like the quality has dipped in recent months. The adaptation shows are a real downer. I came to the podcast for books not shows and it’s frustrating when either host hasn’t even read the book that’s being adapted. Reviews and recommendations are often rambling and the same authors are mentioned frequently. I wish the format was more like Read or Dead, where there is some news, a topic for the week with recommendations, and updates about new releases. I feel like the adaptation and news segments can get out of hand sometimes. Perhaps sticking to a tighter schedule would help.
