A mixture of romance, work and life left to simmer on a weak flame.

"Love - a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker."--Unknown.

"I learned long ago that being Lewis Carrol was infinitely more exciting than being Alice."--Joyce Carol Oates

Podcasts

Podcasting originated somewhere around 2000 and the name is a spin off from Apple's iPod. A podcast is designed to be an automatically downloaded or streaming file. Essentially, it is the internet's version of radio since it is considered to be a repeating syndication. However, Wiki can explain podcasting much better than I...click here

Some common podcasting sites:

Yahoo Podcasts
Yahoo has entire host of podcasts, many of which you can subscribe to for free. Their free podcasts include Learning Mandarin, NPR Story of the Day and Song collection, This week in TECH and Science Friday just to name a few of my favorite.

iTunes

The NY Times Listen to the day's front page every weekday, or find out which stories readers like most.

And now my favorites...BOOK REVIEWS!

The NY Times reviews books

The Hennepin County Library reviews Teen Books

Between the Lines Weekly Book Review Show hosted by former first lady of Atlanta Valerie Jackson.

Cover to Cover Book reviews by Chantal Paquin.

Litrivore

And now for the Romance!

The Kissy Bits The Kissy Bits is a show about reading, writing and enjoying romance. This podcast talks about romance in writing and about writing romance. Each week she'll explore a theme specific to writing emotion that goes beyond the cliche, as well as give real life tips for writers of all genres.

Ellwood What does Leigh dare to do today? Live vicariously through this up-and-cumming author of erotic romance as she chronicles her writing life on her weblog.

I definitely would like to see more romance review podcasts and more authors doing shows like Ellwood.

Happy Podcast-ing!
