Jane Austen is one of my all-time favourite authors and I love the Georgian Period in British History, so I've decided to share my passion with you all and talk to you about different subjects surrounding Jane Austen. The episodes will be weekly (hopefully, I have a health issue so it might not always be exact) and they will break down into a few different categories:A History of England by a Partial, Prejudiced and Ignorant Historian. (General Georgian\Regency history)A. Lady (Jane's Life)There is No Enjoyment Like Reading (Jane's Novels)News Flash (Jane in the news and popular discussions)The Reel Jane Austen (Jane's books on film)This podcast is just a bit of fun to give me a nice project to work on, so I hope you enjoy it. Your faithful servant, The Author
