Social Distancing - "Entertainment"

Hey everyone! The Best Book Club Ever podcast is sounding a little different these days. For one, the four of us (Katie, Mandy, Sarah and Holly) are not together while we are recording. We are instead recording our own separate audio files while on a Zoom call with each other and Holly is working her magic on it all in post-production. THANK YOU, HOLLY! WE LOVE YOU, HOLLY! YOU'RE AMAZING, HOLLY! Also, we are not discussing books during this special series we are calling :: "Ways to Stay Well While Social Distancing," or "What in the World is Actually Happening Right Now and What in the Am I Supposed to Do?" Okay, we have no idea what we are calling it. And we actually do discuss books some in this episode. We hope you enjoy our recommendations for ways to stay entertained during this unprecedented time. And please let us know what you're doing as it relates to entertainment!
