ConSensual Season 2 - Romance for Riot Grrrls

When you hear romance for riot grrls... what's the first thought that comes to mind? 

We think love stories—lots of love stories—that feature womxn who are unapologetically calling the shots, both in their careers and in their pants. If you like the sound of that, we'd better tell you about ConSensual, a consent-celebrating podcast that'll change the way you engage with love stories. Falling somewhere between an audiobook and an audiodrama, this podcast creates immersive, swoon-worthy stories available for free listening on streaming platforms. ConSensual is attached at the hip with fourth wave feminism, providing all the steam of your favorite romance novels and all the laughs of brunch with your best friends without ever, ever compromising your values. 

We're halfway through season one, "Ten Week Turnabout", racking up listens and follows on the daily. With its success under our belt, we're ready to hit the ground running on season two, featuring a brand new love story (and a beloved character from season one). 

We take love stories seriously. 

We are what we eat, and romance is consumed far more than any other literary genre. So isn't it time we start reading (or listening to) the love stories we want to live? 

Love stories that celebrate all types of bodies, races, gender identities, and sexual orientations. 

Love stories that remind us of ourselves and the people we love.
And, of course, love stories that prioritize consent. 

In the era of #MeToo and intersectional feminism, it's more important than ever that our media serves as a good example to readers of all ages of what healthy, sexy consent looks like.

How can you help? 

We value our actors, designers, and sound engineers—after all, it takes a sex-positive village to create a romance podcast. Your contribution will directly compensate our season two artists. And don't worry, we're firm believers in reciprocity...
