The Pitch:

A podcast chronicling a Bob’s Burgers obsession brought to you by two superfan sisters.

The Product:

Is there anything worse than finding a podcast that fills a void you didn’t know existed, only to learn that it’s on hiatus?

LeVar Burton is synonymous with reading and his dulcet tones can soothe your uneasy mind, 50 or so minutes at a time. In each episode he encourages you to ‘take a deep breath’ before enveloping yourself in some engaging short fiction.
