I even love Gabby

A bunch of my favourite people all in one podcast? As if I wouldn’t give them 5 stars.

Sometimes their taste is questionable (some people not appreciating Patiance for its genius, having me on twice etc etc) but they’re still the best romance genre poddy out there.

Informative, entertaining, amusing and at times provocative

Romance books are the biggest selling genre in the world, and the only genre that is predominently written by women, for women. Yet these books, and the people who both read and write them, and treated dismissively and with scorn in much of mainstream media. The truth is that the writers and readers are intelligent, educated, well-read, and the leading edge of gender issues long before they become mainstream - they just like to have an HEA (that's lingo for Happily Ever After), and what, after all, is wrong with that? Kat and her team of romance lovers discuss books, trends (good and bad), issues, academic research into the romance industry, and have international calibre authors, editors and publishers as guest. It's great to find such a great podcast coming out of Australia, which focuses on the local industry as well as looking at the bigger picture world-wide.
