Insightful, funny (and nerdy) conversations!
Really enjoying this sister/brother podcast, talking about science fiction titles I love (and a few I still need to get to).
These two seem to have a clear vision for what they’re about and an apparent knack for conveying it. On top of that, you can tell they’re having tons of fun while they record, and it’s just as fun for us to listen along! I’m really looking forward to seeing where this podcast goes!
Cc and Peter provide awesome commentary on some cool books that I've enjoyed for a long time.
