Big fan of Words and Nerds!
I love the relaxed flow of conversation between Danielle, Chris and the authors. Danielle has very obviously done her research and interprets the story tellers intention and direction impeccably. I love Danielle’s understanding of the characters and themes behind the books.
Chris has an impressive general knowledge and both hosts have a fun, open and cheeky sense of humor.
They touch on many hot topics in today’s society.
Worth a listen.
Book lovers delight

Fun and interesting, with honest and open interviews.
