Welcome Everyone and I have great news for you, as of today my podcast has LAUNCHED!! This is both nerve wracking and really really exciting. I have no idea where this venture is going to be taking me but I am super excited for this and what the future holds in store.
What Is The Pod?
This podcast is “Steeped In Romance” and yes it will have a tea like theme to it. It took me a while to figure out exactly what I wanted to do for it and took a few episodes before I figured everything out. Episode 3 is where we see the final and full changes that I decided on. The first couple episodes just figuring out what I actually wanted to do.
What is the Podcast About?
Well this podcast will be an extension of this site and a little bit more. At first when I knew I wanted to do a podcast about romance I wanted to deliver something more than what the other podcasts actually deliver and that is what I will be doing. So I will of course every week be doing episodes that feature a weekly book read. Once a month or maybe even twice a month (depending on my mood) I will be re reading a old favorite that I want to feature. The reason for this is that there are many amazing romances out there that I believe are underapperciated and want a way to highlight those as well as the newer released books.
HERE are the segments that I will be doing for it:
This segment will feature just the basics of the story and book details, the synopsis of the story and basic character sketches and the listings of character types and tropes that you will find in the story.
In this segment this will be the spoiler section of the episode where I delve deep into the story and what actually happens in the story from beginning to end in my own words.
This will be the review section and share what I thought about this story overall.
This segment is where I will be sharing life lessons that I have learned from the book itself. I truly believe that there are so many elements in the books that we read that we don’t take to heart enough. I want to share what I learn and cover all sorts of issues that can help us be BETTER human beings. The topics can go from relationships, sex, social, and more!! I have no idea where this will actually take me, but I can’t wait for the journey in exploring this segment more with you.
My Inspiration For This Podcast:
There are so many people that have really helped inspire me. My first podcast that I was introduced me was “Smart Podcast Trashy Books” what Sarah Wendell has done with her podcast is truly amazing and was the original source of inspiration for me in this. Also we have the duo at Heaving Bosoms & Learning The Tropes. Many of you who follow this blog, who I have built friendships with and stood by me over the years, I truly couldn’t have been brave enough without you. I truly value your support and love over the months and years. Now I won’t be able to list all the bloggers ( as there is over 100 or so) and I don’t need that long of a post ) that have been there over the past 9 years ( and can you believe it had actually been that long since I started? ) but you know who you are…truly love you all.
And finally I have my podfamily. I truly love all of these podcasters that I have been blessed enough to be a part of. And I hope that you check out these amazing people
