As featured on Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List”, “this podcast about romance fiction takes the guilt out of “guilty pleasure” with author interviews and deep dives into new releases. It’s a compelling reminder of why the oft-dismissed genre is a real force in cultural conversations about consent and desire.” We release new episodes on Wednesdays with guests who range from the biggest bestselling authors to brand new debut authors, publicists, reviewers, readers, and other industry professionals.

Bonkers Romance

Jenny Nordbak and Melody Carlisle are taking their love for romance and dialing it up to 11 with your favorite authors and personalities from Romancelandia. Every Thursday, we recap a truly bonkers piece of romance media and discuss how its tropes are maximized and what they do for us. Along the way you’ll get commentary, book recs, hilarious stories, hot takes, and a unique peek into the brains of creators you admire. Join us each week as we celebrate the authors who really go there and show us that our hard limits… might just be guidelines.

Given birth in a tub. Double-fisted beers at Disneyland. Been tied down and tickled. Gotten kinky with a celebrity in a dungeon. What hasn’t former professional dominatrix JENNY NORDBAK done? On this week’s episode, the girls of Sorry About Last Night sit down with the new mom and author to discuss natural childbirth, what actually goes on in a sex dungeon (not sex), and why sometimes keeping a straight face is the hardest part.

238 – Jenny Nordbak (Mistress Scarlett)

Jenny spent a year and change working for a construction company during the day and moonlighting in a dungeon at night, where she learned a lot about men, sex, power dynamics, and herself. Her book about the experience is called The Scarlet Letters: My Secret Year of Men in an L.A. Dungeon.

Ep. 67 – Priest by Sierra Simone with special guest Jenny Nordbak

Hey all! We have a special guest for you! JENNY NORDBAK FROM THE WICKED WALLFLOWERS CLUB PODCAST! *squeee!*

Jenny and I talk all about Priest by Sierra Simone. A gorgeous tale about a Priest who’s tempted for the first time when he meets a new resident in town. He’s got a six pack and a dominant side, and while she’s looking for direction for herself, they just might be each other’s salvation… or undoing. The squee is real in this episode, y’all.

073 – Bridgerton S1 E6 Recap – Swish with Jenny Nordbak!

**TW: Consent and Sexual Assault** It’s time to get into it and discuss Bridgerton’s most controversial episode. While we dove deep into these themes during our full book review (Episode 6 of our podcast, coincidentally), we wanted to find someone who had more authority than we did to speak on consent. We were so lucky to get to speak with former dominatrix, Wicked Wallflowers podcast co-host, and Bridgerton virgin Jenny Nordbak. We talk about her thoughts on the series as a whole, how they could have done much better addressing consent, and if she’ll be watching next season.
