Sweet Savage Flame on YouTube and Anchor Podcast Streaming

Update #8.5

I’ve realized I neglected to add some of Sweet Savage Flame‘s latest information on our recent Updates #8. Talk about a major oversight.

As Homer Simpson would say, “D’oh!” Oh well, at least I’m not in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant.

We are slowly converting articles to podcasts and YouTube videos. Unfortunately, I have found that it’s not as easy as simply speaking into a microphone and pressing record. I have to learn to modulate my voice better, stop mumbling at the ends of words, and quit inhaling through my mouth! And there’s no way I’m putting my big head on a screen (let alone allow people to see my messy computer room/ book room/ storage room/ den/ cat room), so I have to learn to get skilled in video making.

Sweet Savage Flame has an Anchor Podcast, which can be heard on Spotify, Google Podcasts, and other platforms (not Apple yet; I have to set that up).

Here’s a review that we’ve posted here about Johanna Lindsey‘s Defy Not the Heart as a Spotify podcast:

We also have a Sweet Savage Flame YouTube channel to hear and see us (sort of). This is our latest upload, a list of 6 Sweet and Sexy Old School Historical Romance Heroes:

Thank You For Your Support!

I hope you’ll bear with us as we ride the learning curve. Sweet Savage Flame will dedicate itself to increasing the production values and quality as we master the ropes. In the meantime, we’d love to hear your questions, recommendations, or any input you’d like to offer.

A big thank you to all our readers and supporters who spend some of their time with us talking romance. Without you all reading, listening, and commenting, there would be no reason to do this! ❤

  1. Hi, Jacqueline.

    A few observations:

    1. I subscribed to your YouTube channel. Thank you for the heads up as I frequent YouTube quite a bit.

    2. Your voice reminds me so much of syndicated radio host Delilah’s.

    3. It might be interesting to do audio reviews either here or on the YouTube channel.

    4. Like you, I don’t have a lot of experience with podcating or audio reviews. I would, however, be willing to participate if you wish for me to do so.

    Thank you again for your insight, knowledge, and providing a space for lovers of vintage romance.

    • Dear Blue Falcon,

      Thank you for subscribing! I could use some constructive criticisms, and can always rely on your positive, yet even-handed assessments!

      Another thing I forgot is to mention is WordPress provided me with a free site to upload all the podcasts to. I neglected to add that in the article.

      I haven’t listened to Delilah in a few years, is she still on the air? I enjoyed listening to her positivity, no matter what harrowing situations her callers were in. I was in customer service for many years, so I use that voice for the podcasts. Then there’s my booming voice, which was great for projecting on stage, but too loud for anything else. My “regular” voice is closer to my phone voice, just at 2.5X times the speed.

      I’m reading from a script so it sounded a bit stiff. Engaging in conversations would help loosen up a bit. I’d love to do chats if possible, again have to figure that out. It should be easy enough for podcasting, but w/ YT I think it’s possible to use Google Meet and record discussions, then upload them. Live chat isn’t an option right now.

      You’re so awesome, always offering to make this site even better with your help. I’ll get in touch with you and we’ll talk podcasting/YouTubing in depth.

      Cheers,

      Jacqueline
