It’s finally here! The first episode of the Book Thingo podcast! And to celebrate the launch of our podcast, we’ll be releasing five — yes, five — episodes, back to back, this week. So hang on to your earbuds and listen to what romance readers and authors have to say about this genre that we love so much!
It seems fitting that we’re popping our podcasting cherry with an interview with two of the most awesome romance readers, like, ever — Sarah Wendell and Kate Cuthbert. Okay, yes, this interview was recorded in 2012, but great books are timeless, and we could be having this same conversation today.
Below you’ll find a list of books, TV shows, films, authors and links we talked about in the podcast. We hope you find some great reads from this list. And then come back tomorrow for part 2 of this conversation!
Sarah Wendell — Woman of many talents: Smart Bitches, Trashy Books (blog), DBSA podcast (iTunes), Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches’ Guide to Romance Novels (book)

The most awesome shoes in the universe
The podcasts are produced by Rudi Bremer, who created the most awesome shoes in the universe. Literally. You can find out more about the shoes, which started as a university project, on the Smart Bitches blog. They are, in Rudi’s words, ‘an act of decorative subversion’.
