Sound smart at parties! I read the books so you don't have to!
NOT Porn For Housewives W/ Heaving Bosoms
In the pod's second and Molly's first crossover episode we join forces with the Heaving Bosom podcast to read The Devil of Downtown by Joanna Shupe, in which a wealthy New Yorker who wants to use her priviledge for good meets a dapper crime boss and romance ensues. An introduction to to the wonder of romance! Rebecca stopped reading over seven times to jerk off. Also, the shame of early podcast eps!
Sparkle Magic W/ Arden Myrin
Author, actress, and comedian Arden Myrin joins Molly & Rebecca to discuss her newly released memoir-in-essays, Little Miss Little Compton. Myrin describes the book as, "Little girl from quirky small town family with stars in her eyes moves to the big city and makes good while learning how to be a human on earth. Also, personal safety, grief, and more.
Going Viral Can Ruin Your Life W/ Meg Elison
We sit down with author Meg Elison to discuss her most recent work, a YA novel called Find Layla, in which our protagonist, Layla, puts a video on social media that goes viral and dismantles her life as she knows it. We also discuss the poverty cycle, when caretakers fail, bullying, and Meg gives some great writing tips.
White People Are Actually Pink W/ Maggie Takouda-Hall
Pirates! Witches! Mermaids! Girls kissing! Maggie Takouda-Hall joins Molly & Rebecca to discuss her fantasy YA novel The Mermaid, The Witch, and The Sea. It's an entire world you can disappear into, with gorgeous storytelling and the exploration of the stories we tell ourselves, with our characters on the hero's quest to find out who they truly are, and what really matters to them. Writing process, world building, stealing mannerisms from people in your life for your characters.
The Fireflies' Terrible Way W/ Christine Meehan-Burg
Comedian Christine Meehan-Burg joins Rebecca & new cohost Molly Sanchez to discuss Delia Owen's Where the Crawdads Sing, a coming of age novel wrapped in a murder mystery, set in the 1950's south. We love the marsh, explorations of loneliness, but are tired of seeing stories in which women discover themselves through men. It's a book you just eat up! New segment! Who would we cast in this movie?
Bouncing Between Emotions W/ Amy Spalding
Join Rebecca and author Amy Spalding as they discuss Amy's most recent novel, We Used To Be Friends. The evolution of YA literature. Covering the new experiences and big feelings of adolescence and the pressure that puts on storytelling. There are no sad songs or support for best friend breakups. Stories w/ two POV's. Writing backwards and forwards at the same time - knowing the end of a story can make sad moments happier and happy moments sadder.
