Chelsea and Kay are best friends who love to talk about the books and fanfic they’re reading. Their podcast immediately improved the quality (and quantity) of what I read because they give the best recommendations. They run a great Wordpress website with links to everything they discuss and provide transcripts of the episodes too. Their enthusiastic and fun discussions reflect my fannish experience so perfectly, and I hope Chelsea and Kay continue letting us listen in for a long time!
