I love every episode! Even when the main topic isn’t my jam, I love listening to the news discussions. I nearly always end up with books added to my tbr. I started listening because I enjoy Jenn’s recs on Get Booked. She’s enough to listen on her own, but Sharifa is wonderful, too and they often have very different books to talk about.

Great!
