Tony is the jolly English nerd you been waiting for.

Another fine sofa.

The opening of the podcast had me smiling. Made me think I was sitting down for a generic spaceship ride at the fair -- half expected my recliner to begin trembling for takeoff, while a host on my monitor prepared me for a trip through the galaxy. As long as the diversity of the topics and of the people speaking -- authors, publishers, researchers, et cetera -- on the sofa persists, I will continue listening. I'm giving four stars instead of five, because I question the outro. Fits with the retro feel of the music, but is still slighly cheap. Maybe it will become funnier with each episode. Thanks for creating this podcast.
