Problematic, but....

By FrasierRules - Jan 04 2020

I have the same literary taste and politics as the two main hosts, and I have enjoyed many of the books that they’ve reviewed and recommended. However, even I can’t stand their oft-hypocritical, echo-chamber preaching. People like this fuel Trump-ism whether they know it or not. Still, I haven’t found another podcast that does as good a job of reviewing (without spoiling) science fiction novels as this one. If you can deal with their well-intentioned political preaching, it is great for the book reviews. Again, I am a liberal/progressive and agree with most of their politics, and even I have a hard time tolerating their preaching. You’ve been warned!

Great!
