I have news! Grace Lin and I have launched a new podcast together. It's called Book Friends Forever, and you should be able to subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts. You can also listen on Soundcloud here:
Grace launched the Kidlit Women podcast last year, and we had been talking about doing another podcast together when our team at Hachette Audio mentioned that they were open to producing podcasts. I told them about Grace and my idea, and they agreed to edit and produce it, which has been wonderful.
We try to post a new episode every Thursday. We talk about publishing, life, family, and more. Each episode we catch up with each other's life, take a trip down memory lane, talk about what's on our minds, and share what we're grateful for. So far, we've talked about how we define success, being widows, work-life-balance, micro-aggressions, and more.
We've been having a great time doing it. Honestly, I'm a podcast junkie, and it's been my dream for a long time to do a podcast. When people ask me what I'd be doing if I weren't in publishing, I say I'd love to be working in radio or podcasting. I did radio in college (KALX Berkeley! 90.7), and loved it.
It's also been nice talking to Grace regularly! We generally email, so it's been nice to hear her voice once a week. I hope you'll check it out, and if you like what you hear, please subscribe and rate and review us on iTunes! Thanks!
