  • Great podcast

    I love On the Road with Penguin Classics. The selection of works is eclectic and wide-ranging. The host is charming, and the guests, invariably interesting. I’ve already bought too many new books, though.

  • Very informative

    A great listen. I already have The Book of Disquiet and this episode has encouraged me to get the biography of Pessoa written by Richard Zenith. We can’t see the places described in the podcast, but I felt I was there tagging along…please keep the series going!
