Book Squad Goals

Looking for a book club but don't have time to squeeze real-life meetings into your schedule? Join Book Squad Goals, a bi-weekly podcast about—you guessed it—books, plus all the garbage pop culture we consume when we’re not reading (that’s what our “othersodes” are for!). While you’re paying attention, check out our website & blog at, where we have weekly posts about books, pop culture, and probably our pets. We love our pets.

Othersode #38: Gotta Kiss That Asphalt / #BOOKSQUADGAMES II: Velvet Glove

Call your lady squad because it’s time for the second edition of #BookSquadGames! This time we play Velvet Glove (by Sara “doombringer” Richardson), an RPG focused on gritty girl gangs in the 70s. Follow us as we prep for the big 4th of July drag race and try to solve a mystery! Next we catch up on what’s on the #BookSquadBlog. Read along for our next #bookpisode on Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia (3/23). Then watch the Dracula miniseries on Netflix for our next #othersode on 4/6, where we’ll be joined by author Grady Hendrix (My Best Friend’s Exorcism, The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires)! Follow us on social media at @booksquadgoals, and send your feedback and thoughts to

1:00 – Game introduction and hellos
11:16 – Characters and skills
34:00 – The plot begins!
1:43:21 – What’s on the blog? What’s up next?
