Frolic Podcast Network Weekly Wrap-up!

Want to find your next bingeable podcast? Don’t know where to start? Scared you’ve missed something?  We have listed episodes from our amazing podcasters from the last week for you to check out!

Smart Podcast, Trashy Books: 445. Hot Locksmith Action, Dumplings, and Murder: Book Recs from Amanda and Sarah

Every Tuesday night at 730ET, Amanda and I are live on Stereo (download and join us at stereo.com/smartbitches!) and this is one of our broadcasts!

This is a live recommendation extravaganza: witches, baking, mysteries, older heroines, and great audiobook suggestions. Plus we daydream about what we’ll do when the world opens up, and I share my theory of the universal expression of human love.

Bodice Tipplers
Bodice Tipplers: Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin

Happy lunar new year! We rang in the Year of the Ox with Butterfly Swords, which was Jeannie Lin’s first book. It won the Golden Heart Award back in 2009 and started her illustrious career.

Ai Li is to be married to the powerful and hawt Li Tao, a scheming jiedushi. When she discovers his treachery and his murder of her brother she escapes to warn her father, the Tang Emperor. Except her father isn’t really all that fussed about it? She’s helped along the way by Ryam, Noted White Guy. They travel all around China meeting people and running away from people and hitting people with swords, which is delightful.

There’s really no content to be concerned about in this book (it’s a more recent book!) – if you dig action packed historical romances there won’t be anything in here that’s an unpleasant surprise.

The Shipping Room
The Shipping Room: Episode 159: We Love Ted Lasso

SSR Podcast
The SSR Podcast: Episode 133: Then Again, Maybe I Won’t (with Jen Calonita)

Long ago, Judy Blume was established as one of the reigning queens of the SSR podcast.

On Episode 133, Alli and her guest take a look at a book that feels like a bit of a departure for our queen — Then Again, Maybe I Won’t, which was published in 1971. Unlike many of Blume’s coming of age stories, this one centers around a boy main character, thirteen-year-old Tony Miglione. Tune in to hear a discussion about the significance of this unique perspective on puberty, as well as conversations about mental health, wealth, sex ed, shoplifting, family, creepy spying behavior, Gossip Girl, and Grease.

Jen Calonita is a middle grade and YA author. Her latest book is Go the Distance — a Disney Twisted Tale — and will be available on April 6! Follow her on Instagram (@jencalonita) and Twitter (@JenCalonita).
