2. THE GIRLS WHO LIVED
Ok so I had to include another Potter podcast and this one is a little different, though no new episodes for a while. Bustle’s Associate Web Culture Editor Emma Lord and Books Editor Cristina Arreola discuss all the latest Potter news, chats with experts, and weighs in on the endless theories of the Potterhead fandom.
3. THE READERS
The Readers is an hour-long “chat show for books” that features book news, debates and discussions, and interviews with authors, book bloggers, and people in publishing. The topics are super interesting and the hosts have great chemistry and clearly, love books!
4. GETTING INTO COMICS WITH TIM PAIGE
The movies are great. The shows are fantastic. So you’ve been thinking about Getting Into Comics. But where do you start? There are so many choices! Whether you’ve never picked up a comic book in your life, or you read them when you were younger and want to pick it back up again, that’s what Getting Into Comics is all about. It’s the show that demystifies the world of comic books — hosted by Tim Paige.

The podcast from the sassy ladies at “Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.” The DBSA Podcast is a community of romance readers eager to talk about which romance novels rocked their worlds, and which ones made them throw the book with as much velocity as possible.
7. BOOK CIRCLE ONLINE
Book Circle Online is the world’s first podcast network with shows dedicated to the intimate discussion and dissection of various books. Each BCO podcast centers on one book title and the Hosts, comprised of authors, writers, critics and media personalities, discuss all aspects of the book from the author’s inspiration and background to chapter by chapter breakdowns to the book’s conclusion.
8. MYTHS AND LEGENDS
Jason Weiser tells stories from myths, legends, and folklore that have shaped cultures throughout history. Some, like the stories of Aladdin, King Arthur, and Hercules are stories you think you know, but with surprising origins. Others are stories you might not have heard, but really should. All the stories are sourced from world folklore but retold for modern ears. These are stories of wizards, knights, Vikings, dragons, princesses, and kings from the time when the world beyond the map was a dangerous and wonderful place.
