  2. tee says:

    LOVE looking at apologies in books. I’ve been a big fan of Marjorie & Susan’s blog forever, so this is two of my favorite groups of people in one podcast!

  3. Marjorie says:

    Thank you SO MUCH, Sarah — we absolutely adored chatting with you. (And I am a longtime Smart Bitches superfan.)

  4. Glauke says:

    Did I oneclickbuy Unlocked?

    Did I read it in one sitting, under the blanket instead of going to sleep before midnight? YOU CAN’T PROVE IT

    Thanks for the lovely conversation.
