You had me at booze!
I love to hear these ladies chat about movies and books, and I’m loving their selections so far! Also as a bartender, I really enjoy hearing their different drink selections! This podcast feels like hanging out with friends. -Jacqui (Sisterly History Podcast)
Books Into Movies
I really love the idea of this podcast and the hosts have done a great job running with it. Kaci and Abby are obvious bibliophiles. They read a book and watch it's movie adaptation and then compare and contrast them. It's a fascinating look at what parts of the story are kept, left out, or changed. Even if you haven't read the book and/or seen the movie, this show is worth a listen. It might even entice you to add one to your To Read or To Watch list. #ladypodsquad
Give this show a listen!
When I found this podcast, I knew it was for me. As a book and movie lover, I really appreciate their attention to detail. I listened to the “I Am Legend” episode and loved it. Great discussion, fun banter. Highly recommend!
