Is it time to repurpose romance?

On the latest episode of the Women’s Podcast, journalist Tanya Sweeney talks to Kathy Sheridan about Valentine’s Day, modern dating and why we need to be more generous with our romance, spreading it to all of our loved ones: friends, family and partners.

In the second half of the show, Mills & Boon author Karin Baine explains the secret to writing romance novels.
