Chaos and Cocks - A Podcast for Romantasy Lovers

Chaos and Cocks is a bookish podcast birthed from the chaos of Scarlett St. Clair's street team (aka the cock cult). It's a place for all book lovers, and especially for those who think Romance/Fantasy (Romantasy) should be its own genre! 

We let chaos reign while discussing the latest books, trends, tips, and we occasionally chat with authors and readers. If you ever have ideas, or want to join us for some chaos, let us know! We'd love to have you! 

 

New episodes drop every Saturday on our Spotify channel! You can also listen right from the site by clicking the button below!

Meet the Crew

Okay, I guess we ought to introduce ourselves. Using the stunning picture that Gabbie made of us, let's get to know the podcasters! From top left to bottom right, we are: 

Jess (@the.barnacle.bookshelf)

Jess is me, the owner of this blog! I'm obsessed with books, smutty and otherwise. I'm a fantasy addict, and you'll likely never catch me reading contemporary. I'm a strong proponent for you should be reading what makes you happy, and if you ever need someone to hype you up, I'm here.

 

My favorite color is pink, I have a demon child named Nebula who is currently possessing a black cat, my spouse is in the Coast Guard, and I could live off of pizza. I'm deaf in one ear and I'm a witch as well! I think that covers the fun facts portion of this bio. 

My all time favorite comfort read is Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, which is admittedly not very spicy. My favorite spicy read, currently, is the Hades series from Tate James. I'm also currently obsessing over C. Rochelle's Yaga's Riders series. 

My book boy- and girlfriends are: Cassian (ACOSF), Poppy (FBAA), Manon (TOG), Steele (Madison Kate), Casteel (FBAA), Agrippa (Dark Shores), Persephone (ATOD). Basically, if you're a badass female, or a handsome broody man, I want in. 

Lexi (@readsbylexi)

Hello Witches! I am Lexi, and I was born with a book in my hands. Who needs friends when you have RBF and an addiction to fantasy books? Luckily, I found great friends thanks to being on the Scarlett St. Clair street team and joining bookstagram in 2020. I freaking love it here and I am so thankful to have found my people and my fellow INFJs. 

 

My favorite color is anything dark and deep. Black, deep blue, emerald green, wine red. I also love anything spooky, witchy, and creepy. If I could have halloween everyday I would! The funny thing is my boo cakes is your typical Florida boy. If he could live on the water with a fishing pole he would and his favorite holiday is 4th of July. But he accepts my witchy ways and I love him even more for it. We are the parents of one red headed dragon (a TB chestnut mare), one hippo mutt we found in the swamp, and another land hippo who came into our lives at the right time. No we do not want kids so please don’t ask. We want a boat and library full of books. 

 

My dream job is a stay at home dog mom and best selling author of witchy, spooky, and creepy romance books. I would settle for helping authors and book lovers anyway I can creatively. I am currently a full-time Creative Director for an amazing Marketing Agency. Trying to balance a M-F job, growing my IG, and writing my first novel. 

 

My favorite comfort reads are A Touch Of Darkness series, Wings Of Darkness And Light series, From Blood And Ash series, and A Court Of Thorns And Roses. Throne Of Glass making its way into there too. I love that my book journey has started with Harry Potter and is now surrounded by Ice Planet Barbarians and any Reverse Harem I can get my hands on. 

 

Book boyfriends: Cassian, Casteel, Cass, Hades, Cay, and Rowan. 

Book girlfriends: Poppy, Nesta, Hades, Aelin, Gwyn, and Vasi. 

Britt (@lunarliterature)

Britt is a soon to be lawyer and fellow member of Scarlett St. Clair’s street team. She is obsessed with all things romantasy but also finds herself especially intrigued by darker romance reads (although she’s a big softy irl). It took a long time for her to find her love of reading again, but has no plans to stop anytime soon.

Britt’s favorite color is forest green because she loves the color of trees despite living in the desert for her entire life. In fact, her favorite thing to do as a kid was camp at her family’s property in Duck Creek, Utah. Britt is a mom to four furbabies including a witchy kitty named Nyx after the Greek goddess of Night. Did I mention she’s a witch too? Her spouse is also an avid reader who she enjoys “forcing” to read her smutty books.

Britt’s top comfort read is and always will be the Twilight series. Her favorite “spicy” read at the moment is the From Blood and Ash series, although after some of the other stuff her book besties have had her read, she feels that’s more “smut-light.” She is also unapologetically obsessed with the Ice Planet Barbarians series and is hoping to finish all of those books by the end of 2021.

Book-boyfriends: Rowan (ToG), Casteel (FBAA), and Desmond Flynn (Rhapsodic)
Book-girlfriends: Manon, Manon and oh look at that, Manon

Ash (@awellreadwolf91)

Hey y’all I’m Ash, a lifetime smut reading couch troll, a fellow Scarlett St Clair street team member, and just a general all around nerd. I have had a love of books since before I could even read, my parents have pictures of me at 2 years old surrounded by books. They have always been as necessary as breathing for me, I am that girl that always has a book in her bag, and if I can find a 5 minutes of quiet time I’m going to be reading. I am forever grateful to Scarlett because she brought me onto her street team and grouped me with people I feel like I have been looking for all of my life!

My favorite color is black, I am a INFJ personality type, and a lover of all things dark and spooky. I have been with the same guy since I was 17 years old, our relationship works because he’s a gamer and I am a reader so we are ok with ignoring each other for long periods of time. I am mom to one crazy awesome kiddo and one crazy monster of a dog.

My dream job is to one day open my own coffee shop and bookstore so I can be surrounded by my favorite things everyday!

My favorite comfort reads are the A Touch of Darkness series, the From Blood and Ash series, and the Throne of Glass series. I am currently being dragged deep into RH land thanks to the recommendations of the Cock Cult…not complaining though I am LOVING it! I am also stuck on Ice Planet Barbarians, its become a new obsession, and I am not ashamed.

Book boyfriends: Azriel, Casteel, Hades, Rowan, Archer, Zed

Book girlfriends: Alein, Inej, Hades (from Hades series), Poppy, Manon.

Gabbie (@gabbiesshelf)

Gabbie is a 24 year old goofball who loves to read, play with her two cuddly doggos (Otto-Bot and Gracie) and enjoy the company of her fiancé, Stone. Gabbie is also a fellow member of the Scarlett St. Clair Street team. She is currently going to school to be a recreational therapist. Because she knows you’ll ask, a recreational therapist is like a physical therapist but they have more methods available to them for treating patients. Her goal is to incorporate her passions such as art, reading and animals into her therapy programs. She wants to work with the youth and women recovering from forms of abuse.

Gabbie is one of two (ish) aspiring authors in the podcast group and hopes to have her first manuscript completely written by the end of this year. Gabbie found her love of steamy reads only a few years ago, however she has been reading her whole life. She found herself reading a lot of ya romance, fantasy, dystopian and manga like Sarah Dessen, Fruits Basket, and The Hunger Games and The Selection. When her best friend bought her a copy of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, Gabbie explored her love of steamy reads and hasn’t looked back since.

Gabbie’s dream job is to open her own indie publishing company or to have a career that allows her to work with both authors and readers.

Some of Gabbie’s favorite comfort reads are The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen and A Court of Mist and Fury by SJM. After some major pushing and grounding by her friends, Gabbie has finally started reading the Throne of Glass series and is beginning to feel that this series will quickly become one of her comfort reads as well.

Book Boyfriends: Rowan (TOG) Zed (Hades series) Rhys (ACOTAR) and Casteel (FBAA)

Book Girlfriends: Aelin (TOG) Hades (Hades series) Alice (Twilight)
