As Australia slowly embraces the coolness and chilliness of Autumn, we know it’s tempting to stay in your cosy bed all day with a cup of hot coffee on the bedside.
The perfect way to spend a cosy day in is to read books or binge watch Netflix dramas (yeah we know you LOL!), especially something romance-related to get yourself surrounded with heaps of love and warmth with the seasonal change. But let’s try something different this time – romance podcasts perhaps?
Here are five romance podcasts that encompass the world of romantic vibes and settings.

They discuss personal or societal issues arise from the romantic novel or movie of the week, like pent-up repression and pomposity inspired by the 2005 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
