  • Engaging and love the sparring between the two hosts

    Really interesting podcast for any book lover. Both hosts and engaging and have their own perspectives on the books discussed. I particularly love the sparring they do when they differ in opinion. It’s respectful and humourous and makes it a fun listen! Thank you

  • Can’t understand!
