Fantastic first show!
I'm truly excited to hear the next one!
Okay sure. I'm biased. Seeing as I sleep on the other side of the hammock from bluestocking. But she, and her podcast rock my steamy sox!
Well-executed, this podcast combines just the right balance of literature, dialogue on the modern scene, and music to highlight the points.
