Public reviews:

Keira Soleore, reviewer for Frolic, USA Today and more

This is an amazing podcast featuring the delightful books of the reigning queen of Georgian and Regency romance, Georgette Heyer. Starting from the first episode, where “the” Stephen Fry waxes eloquent on being a fan of Heyer’s work, I have listened to the four episodes so far with excitement and joy. The production quality is superb, the host is superb, and the interviewees are varied and knowledgeable and include greats, such as Jen Kloester, Heyer’s biographer. This podcast is a must-listen for fans and newbies alike.

Naomi Woddis, poet and broadcaster for Reel Radio, host of ‘The Two of Us’

The last thing I expected was to be writing a 5 star review for a podcast about writer Georgette Heyer, but I cannot recommend it enough. It’s not just about Heyer, it’s about what writers look for in other writers, what inspires them and what it means to be a passionate reader. This podcast is for anyone who loves books ! Great use of music too.

If you like Jane Austen try the ‘light’ version with heyer. This is a podcast for anyone who likes historical fiction or books in general focusing on a greatly neglected author, Georgette heyer. Once your a fan, her works are like guilty pleasures you can go back to at any time. Sara-Mae has some great guests such as Stephen fry and Emma Darwin. She spends slot of time diving into the notoriously private heyer a life and speculating why no films have been made of her funny, witty, caustic, historically researched and thoroughly entertaining books. A great podcast.

Blog post: Tough Love and Cake Puns: the Not-So Sweet Story of a Sugar Baby

Don’t…be fooled into thinking this is a shallow kiss-and-tell story. Guided by Sara’s thoughtful and considerate moderation, Ruby and sugar baby friend Madeleine’s stories unfold through conversations with the host, accompanied in later episodes by guest experts and other podcasters. Themes include sex work and politics, women’s rights and the law. Refreshingly, the commentators include women who have actually been sex workers.

The Confessionals quickly becomes a deep exploration of sexuality, psychology, romance and loyalty, and of the many things that complicate these aspects of life…Absolutely vital listening.”

 

Anonymous sugar baby, via email:

[Your podcast] is such a fun listen. I’ve really enjoyed hearing other women who are so articulate about what they feel regarding the sugaring lifestyle. At times I identify with you, and sometimes with Ruby, and occasionally with Madeline too.”

Poet and fashion maven Bette O’Callaghan (rather delightfully) wrote a review in the form of a poem:

Delusions of grandeur

are inherent in youth

it’s the nightmare

of the tangled bed sheets

the result of reckless actions

that haunts one in old age.

 

Miss_Troubled says:

5* – This podcast has intimate details and will satisfy your (voyeuristic) sweet tooth but it’s also a thoughtful look at monogamy, feminism, sexuality, and womanhood. Host Sara-Mae asks all the right questions and does a bit of soul-searching, too. Recommended!”

 

FOReilly says:

5* – I learned loads and was enthralled with the journey and especially Ruby’s story. Really well produced, love this series!

michpsk says:

5* – Wow this was totally brilliant. I loved the subject and Ruby was refreshingly honest and open about one of our society’s biggest taboos.”

 

Transcripts

We’re currently working on our transcripts. We want them to be mini-novellas, packed with extras so that the on-page experience is as good as the audio side. Watch this space to hear more.
