Customer Reviews

June is fabulous

This podcast is a great addition to the Slate lineup. Wish it was a bit longer--seems like the interview was just getting going--but still worth a subscription. June is great in the other Slate podcasts, wonderful to see her get her own! Hope this is a weekly event.

Worthy of Your Ears

This show is what many NPR shows wish they could be.

June and boooks - the perfect podcast

June's Thomas podcast is intelligent, entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, and funny. But I would listen to it even if it were none of those things, just for the chance to hear June say the word "boook." Or is it "bouke"? The only way to improve it would be to make it at least ten minutes longer and twice as frequent.
