PhxNestJess ,

Book recs galore!

Love to listen for the book recommendations (thanks Trisha for The Widow of Rose House!) and romance news.

Tuesday Reads ,

A great way to spend some time.

Two very personable young women discussing romance books. If you enjoy romance, listening to this podcast is well worth your time.

Decent podcast

This is generally a decent podcast. I appreciate how they talk about topics related to Romancelandia in general (both good and problematic). My biggest quibble is that they ramble rather than having a concise message.
