Welcome to the twenty-sixth episode of the Tea in the Treetops podcast hosted by Philippa and Angelya.
This episode was recorded on tour. That’s right, we traveled south for just one day at the Sydney Writers Festival, including TeenCon 2015! In this episode we give a recap of our adventures, as well as a joint review of A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. This episode was recorded on May 25th, 2015.
Thank you so much to all the publishers who made TeenCon such a great experience, especially Felicity (@penguinteenaus)! Also a big thank you to those we met and who gave us mini-interviews. A big shoutout to my sister Steph and her hubby who let us stay with them and their loungeroom recording space 🙂
We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear your feedback – anything you would like us to talk about in particular? Just let us know!
