Reading Women

Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting a range of titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with women writers whose work we’ve loved.

Interview with Anne Bogel

When we started podcasting, everyone and her mother’s brother asked if we listened to Anne Bogel’s podcast What Should I Read Next? And rightly so. She has a great podcast where she talks with guests about some of their favorite books and recommends titles she thinks they’ll love. We couldn’t be more thrilled to chat with Anne about her blog, Modern Mrs. Darcy, her podcast, and her latest book, Reading People. And be sure to be on the look out for our episode on What Should I Read Next?, which will go live on May 1st.
