We love getting new reading recommendations and podcasts are a great way to find some. Not to mention you can listen to them while doing practically anything…you know, like all those annoying chores and errands you’ve been putting off. If you’ve been been on the hunt for a new book related podcast, give these six a listen!
Reading Glasses, hosted by Mallory O’Meara and Brea Grant, is dedicated to help you get the most out of your reading life. Mallory and Brea are both creative professionals (you may know Mallory from her book The Lady from the Black Lagoon) that really understand the need to juggle reading with a busy lifestyle – something we all struggle with. Tune in weekly for discussions on reading recommendations and advice on solving bookish problems.

Feminist Book Club: The Podcast
Feminist Book Club is a subscription service that pairs a feminist book with unique products from woman- and queer-owned small businesses. It’s only natural they’d start a podcast that features interviews with feminist authors, conversations with feminist readers and readings from contemporary feminist works. They’ve become a very empowering resource for well-read women to listen to.

Wine, Women and Words Podcast
Diana Giovinazzo and Michele Levais built a friendship on reading, writing and wine – that sounds like a solid foundation to me! Almost every week, Diana and Michele host the Wine, Women and Words Podcast with special guests from the publishing industry and public speakers. What makes it even more fun is that they also have a book club of sorts where they choose one book each month and discuss it week to week, ending with an hour-long interview with the author.

Reading with Robin
Reading with Robin started as a radio show way back when (yes!) and evolved into a weekly podcast in 2016. Robin Kall, the woman behind it all, has since become a mainstay in the literary community with her exclusive author interviews, galley giveaways, book club contests and author events. Any book lover will be able to find a new TBR addition (or 10!) in her wide range of episodes.
Currently listening to: The Ambassador’s Daughter by Pam Jenoff
Recommended is a book review podcast brought to you by one of our favorite bookish sites, Book Riot. A couple of noteworthy people like authors and poets sit down each episode to discuss what they’ve been reading recently. If you have a favorite author, I’d recommend seeing if they’ve ever been featured in an episode of Recommended to get some remarkable reading recommendations you’re guaranteed to love. There are five seasons of the podcast, so you’ll never know!
Currently listening to: Season 5, Ep. 6 – Alexis Hall and Maika and Maritza Moulite
