Heaving Bosoms: A Romance Novel Podcast


Oct 4, 2021

Hey everyone! This week we've got a super sweet novella called Love's Serenade by Sheryl Lister. It wasn't a home run for us, but we loved being thoroughly steeped in 1920's Harlem as we watched Leigh and Miles find each other again. Plus, there were a ton of super impactful historical easter eggs throughout! And hot sex! It's part of the "Decades: A Journey of African American Romance" series. 

Bonus Content: bedside chocolate, squirrels carrying another squirrel in it's mouth, we're famous, alcoholic mango chunks, Mel's drunk, rent parties, Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston, Art Sculptures of the rural 1920s, "catch my farts," and so much more. 

Lady Loves: 

Mel: Bedside chocolate. What a lovely surprise! And using frozen mango chunks as ice cubes in cocktails. Yum!

Erin: The Scream franchise! They're 1/3 slasher film, 1/3 satire, and 1/3 straight up comedy.

Susan R you are descended from Kanaloa, a Hawaiian god known for being the spiritual leader of the underworld, a mysterious healer, and teacher of magic, who would most often take the form of an octopus, or he’e. Growing up, Kanaloa was my third favorite Hawaiian god behind Pele and Hi’iaka. And he might be the origin of my love for octopodes. In myths he is powerful, yet flexible, and can get out of any scrape he finds himself in. He’s the deity Hawaiians called on when wayfinding because he’s the navigator. He’s the subtle compliment to Hawaii’s chief god Kane. Don’t believe the haoles who say that Kanaloa is evil, or Hawaii’s devil. That’s some judeo-christian projection that happened after missionaries colonized the islands and started bastardizing their culture. He’s flexible, intelligent, and multifaceted, just like you.
