Welcome to Stacked! Join hosts Amanda Kingsley and Ziporah Banda for a fun and thoughtful exploration of the intersection between literature, pop culture, politics and self-actualisation. Every week they unpack one of the books stacked in their respective libraries and confirm why - for them - reading will always be more of a necessity than a hobby.
