In today’s episode, I’m closer to home. Just a 90-mile drive and I'm in Culver City, home of The Ripped Bodice, where I chatted with co-owner Leah Koch.
Here’s a short blurb about this romance-only indie bookshop!
The Ripped Bodice, owned by sisters Leah and Bea Koch, is the only exclusively romance bookstore on the West Coast. The store is proudly Woman and Queer Owned and features a vast and diverse selection of romance fiction. In addition to books, The Ripped Bodice carries a wide selection of gift items focusing on supporting independent, woman-owned businesses.Support the show
