Warm, funny, fascinating

I loved this. Disparate but themed stories from the world of libraries, told with authority, insight and a complete lack of stuffiness. Episode one, ‘The library is open’, takes in a storytelling scheme for prisoners and their kids, a remote Nepalese library that’s fighting people-trafficking, and a very pleasant man explaining why Magna Carta can’t get you off a parking ticket.

Magna Carta the start of British politics?

Lotta politics around these days. Very interesting to hear about one of the first really big political tussles between different sides in this first British Library podcast. And to be reminded that the original Magna Carta is on display for free in Kings Cross

Surprising stories, well told.

I came to this podcast not knowing what to expect but came away moved and surprised. I can’t wait to hear more from and found the Prison story especially moving. Looking forward to the next episode.
