Bibliophile Episode 11: “Classic Arch-Enemy Banter”

In this episode, David Bloomfield, Julie Danskin and Jonathan (JT) Taylor talk about the best Westerns in the first of a new ‘Genre Breakdown’ series. How much does JT know about Bitcoin? Can the gang finish recording in time for David to fetch his moving van? Will Julie ever finish another book again? And from now on, there will be two Bibliophile episodes each month! All this and so much more in the latest episode…
