Great enthusiasm and super accessible!
The best part about this storytelling podcast is that the hosts are obviously having a lot of FUN. Their enthusiasm is contagious and it's easy to have a good time because you know they are, too!
It's also cool that they're both very well-read but also have different backgrounds, so you end up learning a lot as they explain their literary references but aren't afraid to delve deep into topics they know a lot about. This means the podcast is educational but also very enjoyable for the more well-read listener. It's a podcast that makes you want to read more!
