Love this podcast

This is an excellent podcast. Well produced, well edited, great interviews. I’ve found out about a lot of my new favorite books from listening. I highly recommend it!

@writerRVR ,

Who knew crime could be this fun?

The production quality of the podcast is excellent and the hosts are hilarious. I appreciate that each episode has a variety of authors. The mini interviews are as fascinating as the main one. My only complaint is that it is monthly because I always want more. Well done.

Nerdy About Books ,

Beware, you will get hooked

If you love books and enjoy learning how the sausage is made, this is the podcast for you. Eric and Steve ask good questions, listen and put themselves out there.

A word of warning: Episodes are frustrating to listen to while driving. Why? Because the hosts (and guests) provide many, many suggestions about their favorite books (read: what books we may want to read) and you can't write them down fast enough.
