    I’m really loving this new segment, but I was wondering if it would be possible to note timestamps somewhere? I want to listen to Bogi without spoiling myself for Fran’s books.

      That’s an excellent idea and I’m happy to start implementing that right away! It’s currently hours past my bedtime though, but I’ll try to get that up by the end of the week.

      So glad you’re enjoying the Signal Boosts!!
