THE Awesome Meg Tietz

When Meredith introduces Meg, you’ll get to hear a bit of our backstory about how we (Meredith and Kaytee) became friends THROUGH Meg’s podcast, and how we pay tribute to her in every show!

You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each host: meeting a favorite author and new earbuds for audiobooks.

Plenty of book recommendations coming your way this week as Meg and Meredith discuss two recent books each and then jump into a deep dive!

Meg is a personality framework junkie, so she and Meredith take a foray into personality types and reading. Such an interesting discussion! Do you know your Enneagram type? Do you feel like it affects your reading life?

Meg and Meredith finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to put into every reader’s hands. This week’s picks include a National Book Award winner and an older title that will make you think for YEARS.
