Shorts the Podcast

This is Shorts: a new podcast where we talk about contemporary short stories. We’re two long distanced friends who want to talk about what we’re reading. We think that short stories can contain all the richness and excitement of a novel, and can show the world through different perspectives. Before each episode, we invite you to read a story and then we’ll talk about it together. Click the link in the show notes to download our reading list and get started today!

  • Love it and I’m not a short story fan!

    Lizzie and Jenn are delightful, smart, and charming. I love their takes on each story and enjoy listening to two literary-minded ladies piecing apart unique stories.

    Love this new podcast. Funny, insightful - and the reading list is great. I don’t normally read short stories but love reading, I love that Lizzie and Jen select great stories and then get me thinking about them in a new way after each episode. Can’t wait for season 2!
