I love this podcast! Fantasy and sci-fi have always been my fav type of book and I am always looking for new suggestions. I found this podcast just as the pandemic started and it has been one of the bright points for me each week. The hosts are fabulous and I beyond love hearing their thoughts on...Read full review »

I have always enjoyed YA and middle grade Fantasy books. I didn’t realize how much I also loved adult options. This podcast has really illuminated all the wondrous places you can go through SFF! Sharifa and Jenn are the best hosts!

It’s affirming to listen to people who geek out about SF&F books, movies and tv shows as much as I do. Thanks to SSF Yeah, I have found some enjoyable reads such as the Murderbot series, River of Teeth and We Could Be Heroes. Thanks to the hosts, I can moved up books on my TBR shelf by...Read full review »

This is a great podcast for readers of sci-fi and fantasy. The two hosts are enthusiastic but fair in their reviews and I have been introduced to loads of books I might not otherwise have tried. Really interesting and entertaining.

I am a broad reader but SSF is one of my least read areas, yet I love and look forward to this podcast, and value their recommendations when I am in the mood! The news segment is very informative too, and the hosts have great chemistry.

I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and I always look forward to it coming out! The hosts are great and the topics are always fun and interesting to listen to!

I have the same literary taste and politics as the two main hosts, and I have enjoyed many of the books that they’ve reviewed and recommended. However, even I can’t stand their oft-hypocritical, echo-chamber preaching. People like this fuel Trump-ism whether they know it or not. Still, I...Read full review »

I love every episode! Even when the main topic isn’t my jam, I love listening to the news discussions. I nearly always end up with books added to my tbr. I started listening because I enjoy Jenn’s recs on Get Booked. She’s enough to listen on her own, but Sharifa is wonderful, too and they...Read full review »

SF/F is my jammiest jam, and I have added SO MANY books to my tbr list from this show! I can’t even pick a favorite episode. I love them all. Jenn and Sharifa have the best dialogue. I really love hearing their commentary in the news section and fangirling right along with them!
RTurner86 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/19
This is a great podcast - these women know their books! Love it!

Just found this gem of a podcast for my SF and Fantasy fix. Working through the backlog now. Warning to potential listeners your to be read list will grow fast!

The only downside to this podcast is wishing I could participate in the conversation! So great to listen to two awesome ladies discussing books I love as well as books I now want to read and love!
Hacrel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/18
This show is amazing! The chemistry between them is on point and their topics are always interesting! Love them so much!
NekyiaKat via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/10/18
A nice, well-paced blend of sff news and book recommendations. Although over time I’ve heard some recommendations repeated, that’s not a bad thing because they’ve made my TBR ginormous. The only note I’d give is research names if you aren’t sure if the pronunciation. (Neil “Degrassi” Tyson? Come...Read full review »

I literally just discovered this podcast and it is WONDERFUL. I have so much fun listening and it is full of recommendations whether you are familiar with the genres or a beginner. I’m addicted. Sharifah and Jenn are both amazing and I love hearing them talk, they make me laugh and always have...Read full review »

Jen and Sharifah have so much fun on this podcast and I love listening to them on my audiowalks. They talk about all sorts of SFF news so I stay up to date about major adaptations and controversies in the SFF world and then they make recommendations around a theme. It’s really expanded my SFF...Read full review »

I love this show. I’m always getting great recommendations for new books to check out. HOWEVER! Every time I listen to this show, My TBR list grows 😂 I feel like I’ll never get through everything!
Dbld123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/18
I love this. It's so hard to find recommendations for quality Scifi and fantasy books. This show hits the mark perfectly. I also like the news they do before the recommendations as well.Read full review »

I love this podcast. I am always excited when I get a new episode. I wish it was a weekly podcast (can this happen please???). Thanks for great fantasy/sci-fi news and great book recommendations!!!!
lbryson88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/18
Meh
I listened to a couple episodes but couldn't take it anymore. All these Book Riot podcasts seem very "inside baseball" in that if you're not in the publishing world you've likely never heard of half the stuff they're talking about and they don't bother to explain it,...Read full review »

I love this podcast so much I just finished binging all the episodes and added soooo many books to my TBR. Keep up the great work!
BowieIsKing via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/17
So glad I subscribed to this podcast. The hosts are fun to listen to, and I have so many more books I want to read now. Definitely check this out if you like sci-fi or fantasy.

I love that Book Riot is always adding to what they are offering to the online Book Community. This is a great addition to their podcast line-up!

Great new pod cast for book nerds! I love fantasy books and have been trying to read more sci-fi so I think this podcast will help me learn about great new books!
This podcast makes me happy :) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/17
My favorite genres are mystery/thrillers and Sci-fi so this podcast is right up my alley. I like how they discuss book-related news but also the new releases for this genre. I enjoy it and highly recommend it to all readers.
Carol_791 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/17
Book Riot, you are taking over my podcasting life...and I am loving it. SFF news and recs? More please!
Kestrel_Reads via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/17
I'm just getting back into the world of science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction, and SFF Yeah! comes at a perfect time. I'm a big fan of Jenn after having listened to her on All the Books for some time, and Sharifah is also hilarious. I can't wait to see where this podcast...Read full review »

Off to a great start and thrilled to see BookRiot expanding their repertoire to include a weekly SFF podcast! Will revise this review once there are a few more episodes posted, but already loving the humor, enthusiasm, and extensive genre knowledge Jenn and Sharifah bring to this show.

Becky LeJ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/17
I'm a recent convert to the sci-fi/fantasy genre, so I'm really appreciating Sharifah and Jenn's knowledge on the subject. Yeah, they're a little goofy and giggly, but that's part of their charm. I've already gotten some great book recommendations from them and I'm...Read full review »

Loved the new podcast enjoyed it. Bookriot has the best podcast 👍🏻
Bathe great via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/17
Okay... I don't want to be terrible. But this podcast needs a lot of work. They need to prep more -- way too rambling, too much plot detail, too many times they sound like they are losing track of the point they are making. Lots of "um" and fillers while they fumble for the point. ...Read full review »

Listed to the first episode and it sounds like the hosts have been doing this podcast together for years. Excited to see where they take this!

I'm so happy to have another Book Riot podcast to follow! Sharifah and Jenn are really cool :) I'm excited to reawaken my love of sci-fi and fantasy with their help. There was a phase in my life where I also strayed away from these genres, but I do love them and I can't wait to hear...Read full review »
