DotW: Judging Books By Their Covers

Dick of the Week episode 29: Judging Books By Their Covers

Hey there listeners!

Today Stephanie and Liz have their very first male guest on the show (whaaaat!) Mr. Billy Fraizer to discuss what makes book covers important and what makes us like or dislike a cover, especially with the newer illustrated cover thrend. We also play a fun new game where we hand a romance novel to Billy and he has to guess the genre and what it is about.

Billy is a local St. Louis graphic designer, writer, and a cappella singer and can be found at his website here.

Dick of the Week is a proud member of the CalamityCast Network.

DotW: Bare Chested Men; Hair Optional

Episode 5: Bare Chested Men; Hair Optional

In the 5th installment of Dick of the Week, the ladies discuss who their ideal hunky heroes are (spoilers: they all have beautiful hair and strong arms) before discussing the one aspect of a book everyone is quick to judge: the cover. Stephanie, Duchess, and Liz dive into what they find attractive in a book cover and what makes them say “no thanks” to a book among a genre that tends to rely on hard abs and seductive looks.


A special thanks to our listeners who contacted with us on social media regarding what you like or dislike regarding book covers! You all made prepping for this episode so much fun.
