Monsters meet romance, scary meets sexy—these are just a few of my favorite things. What a joy and an honor it was to get invited to fangirl about the Monster Romance subgenre with Agatha Andrews on the She Wore Black Podcast! We touch a little bit upon the subgenre’s history, as well as a few of the factors that might be contributing to its recent surge in popularity, and we discuss the appeal of monsters before rounding off the conversation with a handful of recommendations. (I could have kept going on and on, but we’d need a mini series for that).
The episode is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts. Listen in and join the fun!
A parting note.
I would be remiss if I didn’t share that this was my very first podcast guest appearance, and wow, what an unforgettable experience. I was wicked nervous about recording, but Agatha is such a lovely person and a complete pro. Seriously, I think she could narrate for Masterpiece Theater, her speaking style is so smooth and effortless.
I was a listener before I came on the show, and I just love the podcast’s discussions of gothic and horror media, but I especially adore it when the host dives into those genres’ intersections with romance. And she does so quite regularly! It is so clear that Agatha is a voracious and knowledgeable consumer of all three genres, and I appreciate that so much.
If you’re a fan of gothic, horror, or mystery, I encourage you to subscribe and follow She Wore Black Podcast.
