Let me wipe my tears first...

This is an amazing podcast and the last episode I listened to (The Hate U Give) covers all of the things I wanted to discuss with others about the differences from the book. Your episode made me cry; it not only *authentically* brings up topics we should all be discussing together, but makes me want to be a better ally for POC--and to be an accomplice! Thank you for this!

I’m Officially Addicted

I am a high school ELA teacher and my intention was to check this out to hear about books to put in my classroom. I never expected to become obsessed. I literally listened to 3 episodes in a row the first time I listened, and one went I went for a walk that evening. I eventually caught up and I absolute love it! I cannot pick just one episode to rave about; They are all done so fantastically, and I cannot wait for more to come!

So happy I listened!

I’m a newbie listener.

Listened to ‘Monday’s not coming’ and I absolutely enjoyed the flow of conversation & of course the book! Even though I listened all the way through, I will be picking this one up.

Courtney & Anna’s perspectives were both so refreshing & real. I could totally relate to their feelings on the book.

Now, I’m hooked! Clicking on ‘Children of Blood & Bone’ as soon as I submit this.

Keep up the great work!
