“I don’t know a genre that’s better suited to show strong female characters who get everything they want.” – Kelly Reynolds
This episode is brought to you in collaboration with Thumbs Cookies.
Our guest this week is Kelly Reynolds, host of Boobies & Noobies, a podcast that asks novice romance readers to think outside the box. With her background in Theater Arts and Screenwriting, Kelly has taken her love for all things romantic comedy to literature as well. As an avid romance novel reader for nearly ten years, she decided to launch her podcast Boobies & Noobies this summer with the goal to erase the stigma and stereotyping that surrounds the romance genre. In this conversation, Kelly and Renee chat about that stigma and how the romance genre can be a subversive path to feminism.
