Get ready for Summer with more Friends & Fiction fun!



We have many new and exciting happenings over at Friends & Fiction. Here are a few of our favorite things. We hope you will join in the fun with the fab five at Friends & Fiction this summer!



New Partners

We are proud to introduce our new partners!


Storypoint Wines


Join us for Aftershow Sip & Stay

Each Wed following Friends and Fiction

@8pm ET


Beginning in June 2021, it’s going to be “The Summer of Storypoint” on Friends & Fiction. Each week, the after-show will be called “Sip & Stay with Storypoint” and will be sponsored by Storypoint Wines. This distinctive collection of flavorful wines—Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay—from California’s best growing regions, seeks to champion stories that inspire. After all, many great stories and ideas unfold over a shared bottle of wine. The experience of a wine—like that of a good book—should tell you something, invite you to discover new things, and be surprised. ​ Become a Storypoint Insider. Subscribe to their Newsletter.
