I love the addicted podcast and would rank it is one of my favorite things about audible. This episode 27 was full of great suggestions, but I found that I kept missing the name of the title, or maybe it wouldn't catch my interest until I heard the description, and then the title was never mentioned again. Fortunately i was able to go on my computer and find the list of books from this episode (i cant figure out how to find that on the app on my phone yet!). But my one suggestion would be to say the name of the title at the end of the description/discussion and not only at the beginning. thanks for this great podcast!

I'm intrigued by some of the titles. I always like the best of the year books because it is interesting seeing which books are popular.

Not a good list
Many of the books reviewed are not what I’m interested in. The people in the program where also kind of preachy. Im not interested in there personal or political views i just want to find good books.
U need boomer reviewers.
These people love to hear themselves talk. Less talk and more samples please! Maybe there is a boomer top picks on here that I missed. Wrong generation to be picking for your boomer target audience.
Audicted is not for me
Not a regular listener. I'd be delighted to read a transcript, but definitely not for me.
High production value all around, with pleasing voices. Stopped listening to the words and just enjoyed their voices after a bit.
That there isn't a link to the whole best-of lists would seem an obvious oversight. Especially since titles were only mentioned once. When it's the first exposure to a title, then followed by a multi-person review, one expects at least one more mention to make it memorable and searchable.
Would enjoy reading this for the same reason I prefer a written diy over videos - written is easier to repeat, or scan, or pause to secure it in the brain. Also, screen captures for reference.
Also, really felt the generation gap while listening. It's only a decade or 2 we're talking about here (I'm barely 50), but there were a few double takes just in the first 20 minutes. Certainly, podcast productions should cater to they're repeat listeners. But if Audible plans to promote it to everyone, why not make it inclusive for a wider audience?
if your brain is still in top top shape, if you're a millennial, if you either follow all the genres or stick to your comfort zones, give it a try! It has the right ingredients to delight.

Brilliantly written and narrated. I was totally absorbed into the lives it describes. I have read the book and found it's audible equivalent superb.
