Shopping, Reading, and Renaming the Podcast: 16 December 2011

It’s a new podcast! WITH a WHOLE NEW NAME! YAY!

Seriously. Sorry for the delay. Blame iTunes. We had to change the name of the podcast because iTunes didn’t like the word “Bitches.” I cannot imagine why!

If you subscribe via iTunes, please UPDATE your LINKS: The New iTunes link is live here.

Yes, the episodes are all out of order – I have NO idea why – but if you note we’ve numbered the episodes while I try to figure out what the hell iTunes wants now to make them display in order.

This week I convince Jane to talk about the Agony / Ecstasy Anthology, and we reminisce about old ebook stores and old reading devices. We also discuss schmoopy epilogues, were-bears, and books we’re reading right now.

Here’s the list of titles we’re talking about this week, along with a link to any devices or apps we discuss, too.

    Just an fyi — the podcast displays on my iTouch as”New and Improved” with no picture, instead of the beautiful logo and alphabetized as “DBSA”. Took me a few moments to locate it on my device after I had synced. I love you podcasts, BTW.

    Is the new episode up at Podcast Pickle yet? The most recent one I see is Nov 28.

    And FYI, there’s no logo pic there either. At least under IE.

    @library addict I think the Podcast Pickle is based on the ITunes feed so we must be suffering some difficulties from the iTunes feed. I’ve uploaded it here.

    Thanks, Jane. I downloaded it to listen to in the morning.

    thx for this. I love listening to you two ladies talk romance – there aren’t that many romance lovers near me so I don’t often get to hear a positive conversation.

    Really enjoy the podcasts. My day job is cleaning houses and the conversation helps me through part of the day. Thanks.
