Two sisters, one in L.A. and one in NYC, both move to the Chicago area and start a podcast. The premise? Picture books and are they really that great? Join Kate and Fuse 8 (Betsy Bird) as they track down a picture book "classic" each episode and try to determine if it deserves to remain in the canon of children's literature.

So fun!

I love the dynamic that Kate and Betsy have! The combination of their personalities and my favorite topic of kid lit makes for great episodes!

Irreverence at its Best

I’ve been a fan of Betsy’s blog for ages. It turns out that humor and excellence run in the family. Sisters Betsy and Kate have a hilarious, dry camaraderie perfect for their subject. It’s fun to hear both a novice and an expert review classic children’s books and discuss crazy things about them. A number one choice for any teacher or librarian.


This is a surpassingly hilarious podcast and one that has been missing from my life for a long time. I burned through three episodes just today and have had so many laugh-out-loud moments which are sorely needed these days.
