On Friday night, Deena Rae and Tiffany Fox of Badass Book Society, recorded their weekly Badass Books n Booze and Badass Pub podcasts. Even before all the craziness that happened in Dallas, Diantha Jones as the scheduled guest to talk about her books (on the Books n Booze show) and to talk about social media marketing (Instagram and Pinterest in particular). After all the bloodshed and racial tension the subject of race and diversity came into focus on both shows. Diantha, writing as Diantha Jones and A. Star, fills her books with racially diverse characters, just like the society that we live in. The Books n Booze podcast is available on iTunes, Stitcher, Talkshoe as well as YouTube, for those of you who would rather see who is talking .
