I WONDER… Wednesday – #4 – Podcasts
Hello, my lovies 🙂 And welcome to a new mid-week feature, called “I Wonder…”. Basically, this is my chance to chat with you all about something I’ve been pondering. Every week’s topic will be book/publishing/author related in some way. I’m looking for feedback on these posts… so I’d love to hear your thoughts. (It’s lonely over here in my little corner of cyberspace!!)
This week, I’m excited to have some of my very favorite people TALKING JUST TO ME!!! Ok, fine… they’re not talking JUST to me… they’re talking to anyone who listens to their podcast. It was a strange turn of deja-vu-all-over-again for me last week. Two different groups of ladies that I used to listen to in a couple of podcasts a few year ago, BOTH started up NEW podcasts within a week or two of each other!!! *dances with fangirl joy*
For those of you not familiar with podcasts… they’re recordings that generally center around a particular theme, and are usually done on some kind of regular basis, so people can listen weekly/monthly/etc. I’ve seen them for just about everything under the sun, but haven’t really gotten involved in too many of them. (I’m not sure why, because they make me happy, lol.)
The two NEW podcasts I’m talking about are (you can click their images to visit the podcast site):
Blushes Podcast: Featuring authors Christina Lauren (Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings), Alice Clayton, and publicist Enn Bocci. These ladies will CRACK YOU UP!!! Their discussions cover books, movies, tv, and other pop culture, in a way only they can. They’re easygoing and irreverent, and their friendship is evident in their discussion. There have been two episodes so far, and they’re both fantastic. You can listen to Blushes Podcast on their podbean site, or through iTunes. It’s free to listen, download, and subscribe.
Geek Is The New Pink: These four ladies have “geekdom” down to an artform. I love their enthusiasm and their playfulness. Any fandom you can think of will have representation here. Books, music, film, television, videogames… you name it… they’re following it. Nicole, Rachel, Anna, and Sammi have different tastes and passions, and they blend so well in this type of interaction. You can listen to Geek Is The New Pink on iTunes. Again, it’s free to listen, download, and subscribe.
I know of a few other podcasts out there that I’d like to try listening to… Anton Strout’s “Once and Future Podcast” is generally book related with author guests… and Tee Morris (and friends) has done many podcasts, mostly with Steampunk elements.
So… have any of you ever listened to podcasts?? If so, which ones? If not… did you know about them? Will you be looking for something you can try out? Have any of you listened to the few I mentioned?? I look forward to hearing your thoughts in the comments!!
