Dear Bitches, Smart Authors aka DBSA PodcastSmart Bitches, Trashy Books and occasionally Dear Author owner, Jane Litte I devoured this podcast. I didn't read romance at the time…although er, it made me start a romance blog. The romance genre has so many smart and funny authors and it's fascinating to hear about their lives and writing styles. Not to mention Sarah and Jane have great chemistry.

A spin off of the cult advice column, the Dear Sugar Podcast is hosted by authors and friends Steve Almond and Cheryl Strayed. Each week they field questions about love and life. These two are storytellers so each question is answered with a story from their own lives or occasionally they read a a piece of literature. Also as a bonus literary nod they have other authors on to offer their perspectives.

The hosts and occasional guest sit around talking about the latest and greatest in pop culture adding in their own perspectives and experiences. They don't always talk about books but Linda is a fan of Rainbow Rowell and Women's fiction and the show has NPR's book editor on the panel as well.
