Leesa Love’s Best Podcasts for Writers and Readers

August 31, 2016

Dreamspinner’s staff member, Leesa Love, shares her favorite podcasts for writers and readers.


With rapidly developing technology and the growing popularity of audiobooks, the podcast scene is on the rise again. Combining the nostalgia for radio shows with the portability of apps, shows of all genres and topics are popping up, including several on the subjects of writing, publishing, fiction, and books in general. This list compiles some of the most helpful and entertaining shows for both writers and readers of all kinds.

Shows can be downloaded or streamed in a variety of locations, including iTunes, Google Play, individual websites, and several Android apps including Podbean and Podbay.


The Creative Penn

The Creative Penn

Hosted by successful author of both fiction and writing handbooks Joanna Penn, this show gives listeners access to the best tips on every aspect of writing, publishing, and marketing as well as fun interviews with writers of various backgrounds and styles.

Episode 282, “How To Write And Market Romance With J.A.Huss” may be especially intriguing for Dreamspinner Press authors and readers; Huss tells of her experiences as a scientist and textbook writer turned romantic author, with her own twist.  http://www.thecreativepenn.com/


Helping Writers Become Authors**  

Another in-depth writing podcast, host and author K.M. Weiland begins each fifteen minute episode sharing her progress with her own novel writing. She then discusses an aspect of novel writing from pacing to finding the right critique partner, providing helpful tips and walking aspiring authors through the process to success. Her website provides further tips and access to her writing handbooks. https://www.helpingwritersbecomeauthors.com/


Grammar Girl

Grammar Girl Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing

For authors who occasionally struggle with grammar or are simply fascinated by the technical aspects of writing, Grammar Girl is a helpful podcast. These short episodes hosted by Grammar Girl herself, Mignon Fogarty, will take you through some of the trickiest grammar rules such as affect versus effect (episode 524) and even expand your vocabulary with words like “brouhaha” (episode 514). http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/grammar-girl


Dissecting Dragons

Dissecting Dragons

Authors and fans of speculative fiction will find an enthralling show in Dissecting Dragons with authors J.A. Ironside and M.E. Vaughan, as they discuss both classic and modern books and films. Each episode explores a specific topic within the speculative genre, from the re-emergence of the fairy tale in modern adaptations to political themes within dystopian stories. http://dissectingdragons.tumblr.com/




Scary stories meet real life in this spooky historical podcast. Host and supernatural thriller author Aaron Mahnke explores dark tales from history that fuel fears and folklore in a campfire ghost story style. Using stories Mahnke uncovered while researching for his novels, each podcast presents true stories of phenomena, often simultaneously revealing the darkest sides of human nature. http://www.lorepodcast.com/


Welcome to Night Vale

Welcome to Night Vale

The first of three fantastical podcasts from Night Vale Presents, Welcome to Night Vale is a community radio show for the fictitious desert town of Night Vale, hosted by the fabulous Cecil Palmer, whose voice is just soothing enough to distract listeners from the strange goings-on and even stranger citizens in town, including sentient glow clouds with positions on the school board, to the faceless old woman secretly living in your home and running for mayor. Between important town updates, listeners also get a glimpse into the growing romance between the host and a certain handsome scientist determined to uncover the secrets of Night Vale.

Goosebumps: Welcome to Deadcast

Welcome to Deadcast is hosted by the Terror Twins Daniel and Matthew Scott Montgomery, actors and lifelong fans of R.L. Stine’s classic spooky Goosebumps series. This podcast is filled with nostalgia and laughs as the twins reread and review the series, comparing each novel with its TV show counterpart and sharing their juicy Goosebumps adventures. http://welcometodeadcast.podbean.com/


Singing Bones

Singing Bones

The Singing Bones podcast reveals the “bare bones” of our favorite fairy tales, whose origins are often much darker than we realize. In each episode, author and performer Clare Testoni explores a different fairy tale and compares all of its variations around the world, including details about the figures recording the tales as well. Many of the complete stories can be found the podcast’s website http://singingbonespodcast.com/.
