A great Beginning
As someone new to podcasts I am excited to make this my first subscription. With a love of books and of course Disney this will be a perfect match. I am excited by your first selection as I have an autographed copy of Marty’s book and was blessed to have met him prior to his passing. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Disney literature including the classic fairytales as we know Disney often changed them to his liking.
I love this podcast. I learned about them via the Mad Chatters and now it’s part of my must listen too and I have also been adding to my book collection and reading wish list. These ladies have a great chemistry. They are fun to listen to and follow along with!!!
Love the podcast
Love listening to you guys talk about books! Combining my 2 favorite things, reading and Disney! I love your recommendations for books to read and have been trying to keep up and read along and it has been fun!
