I have a new book adventure that I’m so excited to share with you all today. My friend Emily Fine and I have started a book podcast!
Introducing–drum roll, please–the Book Cougars: Two Middle-Aged Women on the Hunt for a Good Read.
Our first episode went live on Tuesday and you can stream or download it from our website: bookcougars.com. We’re working to get it on iTunes.
The first episode is just over an hour long. The first half is a test run where we talk about doing the podcast, who we are, where we are, etc., and the second half is a “proper” episode with what we believe will be our regular segments: Just Read, Currently Reading, Literary Adventures, Upcoming Jaunts, Upcoming Reads.
Emily and I met because of a book podcast, namely, Books on the Nightstand, hosted by Ann Kingman and Michael Kindness, so it seemed kind of natural for us to start our own podcast (especially since Ann and Michael have, for now, retired their podcast).
Michael gave us a wonderful shout-out on Twitter:
Just listened to – and LOVED – the first episode of the @BookCougars podcast. Love the laughter, the warmth, & the book talk. Go listen now! https://t.co/iqvDPSJ6VO

We’ve already recorded Episode 2, a holiday special, which will be available early next week. In that episode Emily and I each talk about our top 10 reads of 2016 and offer some holiday gift ideas for book lovers.
And if you’d like to send us feedback or ask a question our email address is bookcougars at gmail dot com.
I’d be so honored if you’d give us a listen.
P.s. What is it with me and animals in my titles? WildmooBooks blog, Book Cougars podcast…?
