Episode 1: Why Books and Tea?

Episode 1: Why Books and Tea?

Welcome to the first episode of Books and Tea Podcast.  In this episode, you will learn who Kyrie and Cori are, how they met, and why they started this podcast.

Kyrie and Cori will also share some book likes and dislikes and then make recommendations for each other based on what they talked about.

Kyrie and Cori got this idea from Modern Mrs. Darcy and her show of “What Should I Read Next.”  Cori thought it would be fun to do this for Kyrie, and then Kyrie did it for Cori. With the completion of reading their book recommendations to each other, they had the idea of starting their own podcast and using the first few episodes to do this “book matchmaking” before they start their genre exploration.

Next week, Kyrie and Cori will share their reactions to two book recommendations they gave each other.
