Can’t Talk Rerun! Episode 1: Geek it Secret, Geek it Safe

Life keeps interfering with our most sincere plans to record, so we're rerunning the show that started it all, in all its baby podcast glory. We've grown a lot since then! 


In our very first episode of The Can't Talk Podcast, Bell explains why you shouldn't name your characters after bodily fluids and Amelia sings Megan Hart's praises. The conversation moves on to the books we loved as kids, trends in romance novels, and what happens when writers start "phoning it in". After that, the ladies (for lack of a better word) dissect the phenomena of geek exclusivity and how it ultimately relates to misogyny.

Discussed in this episode: (Click to follow links)
Bell does not recommend Immortal Ever After by Lynsay Sands 
Amelia highly recommends The Favor by Megan Hart
We're not sure how to feel about Public Service Announcement: Nerds 
Also mentioned:
(edit: Amelia got this wrong, mixing up Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice with the Story of O by Pauline Raege. Sorry!)
