Why have they stopped?

No ‘bookclub’ in Feb or March 2020. It looks like they have just given up. Disappointing. I was enjoying listening to this podcast each month, it added an extra dimension to the free monthly book.

Solid except for the host

The topic of the discussion was The Trauma Cleaner, a beautifully nuanced biography of a woman and the trauma of her life along with those of the people she works with.
Host Tom Ballard clearly doesn’t have a great grip of that nuance shown by the books writer Sarah Krasnostein, and I found a few things he said alienating and cringey. Melissa Norberg certainly had her empathy switched on and thank goodness for her contributions!

It's book club for introverts!

Liked to hear their thoughts and the author interview. Thanks! Next month I think I'll pour a wine to complete the bookclub feel.

Insightful, funny, interesting.

Tom, Meshel and I work so well together. I particularly enjoyed my jokes — Meshel had a couple of corkers about actual crime process, and Tom's Irish accent transported me to Madrid.
Loved this more please Audible. Dan
