DA SBTB Podcast, Episode 38

In this episode, we attempt to define blue collar heroes – and figure out whether they really exist.  We talk about what drives Sarah nuts about sex scenes and erotica. And then, can Jane convince Sarah not to read the Kristen Ashley books?

Here are the books we discuss in this episode:

Our music is provided by Sassy Outwater. This podcast features “Three Ships” by a UK duo called Deviations Project, which features producer Dave Williams and violinist Oliver Lewis – they have their own Wikipedia page! Badass. This song is from their Christmas album Adeste Fiddles.

    I haven’t read any of those authors, but Sarah Mayberry has done blue collar heroes that I’ve really enjoyed.
