5 STAR REVIEW

I was introduced to Romansplaining via Gutterballs and haven't looked back. I am a solid Leslie and Adam fan. It takes you through each book with all the ups and downs, strikes and gutters, with some excellent banter. Get into it.

(You happy now, Adam?!)

I drive places just so I can listen

If you like a deep dive into books that you would never read on your own, interspersed with frequent potty mouthed, comedy-filled digressions, this is the podcast for you. Adam and Leslie are smart and witty without being pretentious. It’s the perfect balance of lighthearted good fun (mostly) and exploring the cultural dynamics and themes that underly contemporary romance literature/film (just a dash). If you listen better, you just might learn something.

Hilarious!

Each ep is a raucous romp through a silly romance novel. You'll love Leslie's winky style as she reads through some of the more explicit passages of the story and Adam's wry responses to the novel's over-the-top prose. Double entendres abound! Give this show a listen--it's a hoot!
