Intelligent and Informative
This podcast features a host and guests that give intelligent and insightful viewpoints on life and how it parallels literature. It features unique perspectives and I look forward to more.
Entertaining and Thought Provoking
Terry chose books and guests that were both entertaining and thought provoking. I enjoyed learning more about books I wouldn't typically choose to read on my own and see how the subject matter can be seen in my life and the world around me. The discussion is easy and fun to follow and I love that Terry and his guests infuse their opinions and views with both fact and thoughtful consideration. I can't wait to continue listening and reading along!
I learned alot listening to episode 3. Very dope podcast and i'll be back to listen to more epsiodes.
