Sometimes a blog post or Facebook update just won’t do. You want a person’s unedited and unfiltered opinion. You’re interested in listening to a thought-provoking conversation among a group of people and follow the discussion.
That’s when you need to listen to podcasts. Here are three series a romance reader should try at least once. They have good production value, the hosts are careful not to drift too far off topic (but, just an FYI, the conversation can get bawdy), and each channel offers a wide range of topics, guests and news. There’s something for every romance reader.
