    Loved the podcast, ladies. My most memorable moment has to be the Bitten 2 Con this summer…….especially my cuddle with Joe Manganiello! 🙂

    Any chance of hearing an interview with Grant Bowler on one of your podcasts in the new year? He’s so fab!

      Ah yes, the cuddle that made women across the planet want to be you. 😉

      Not sure about getting Grant Bowler for an exclusive since he is no longer on the show. We did try though.

    I like the new format it’s good! For some reason it flows better too. I hope you ladies enjoy the holidays with your family and I wish you a happy healthy new year.

    I loved your list, and the fact that you didn’t even pretend to rank them best to worst. LOL As always you gals did a magnificent job. I hope that you both have a fabulous Christmas and a wonderful new year. Keep up the great work!

    Hi Ladies,

    You mentioned The Vampire Diaries in your Vodcast, do you also run a fansite for that show? I’ve only recently discovered it!

      We don’t have a “Vampire Diaries” fansite, mainly because by the time the show debuted there was already a very large site devoted to the it. Fans of the books jumped on that as fast as we jumped on the True Blood news.

      If you’re looking for a good TVD site, try this one: They are pretty good.

      As Liz said, we don’t have a site dedicated to TVD, but we do cover it at You can see our interview with the adorable Joseph Morgan (aka Klaus) here:

    I don’t think Sookie “divorced” Eric in book 11. She broke the blood bond so she could know her true feelings. I always thought they were 2 different things??? The bond was formed through the blood exchanges and the marriage is from the scene at Fangtasia with the dagger. I’m pretty sure they are still married in the vampire sense.

    Merry Christmas Liz and Mel.
    Look forward to True Blood Radio next year.

      I still feel like they are married… their hearts which is all that really matters.

        They ARE still married going into DL. I double checked last night and Eric even says after the blood bond is broken that their marriage offers her some protection but she is vulnerable without the bond. Whether the queen will respect their marriage remains to be seen but I’m pretty sure Book Sookie could kick her ass out of town.
        Have a great Christmas esw45 – I look forward to talking Sookie with you again next year.

      It’s divorce the way we meant it, Sookieeleana. You have to learn to think like us. LOL! A very Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!
