The lads chat to Eliza Clark
Alice and Bethany have the huge pleasure of talking to girlie of the moment, Eliza Clark, largely about her new novel Penance but also about true crime, Tumblr, the wild success of Boy Parts and its upcoming stage adaptation!
The lads chat body horror with Heather Parry
Alice and Bethany have the great pleasure of talking to Heather Parry about her short story collection This Is My Body Given For You, which is a gnarly little thing full of troubling images and ideas. She also talks about the great work she does at the Society of Authors, and lots more!
The Lads Chat Unlikeable Female Characters with Anna Bogutskaya
Alice and Bethany have the great pleasure of talking to the film journalist and programmer Anna Bogutskaya about her new non-fiction book Unlikeable Female Characters! They take a dive into the world of 'unlikeable' women through film and TV from erotic thrillers to Skyler White via the Hays Code and Amy Dunne from Gone Girl.
Fat Talk with Virginia Sole-Smith
Bethany has the huge pleasure of chatting to Virginia Sole-Smith about her revolutionary new book Fat Talk: Coming of Age in Diet Culture, which investigates the radical possibility of abandoning our cultural fears around 'childhood obesity' to create bodily autonomy in children and beyond.
The Lads Celebrate Death of a Bookseller
Alice's debut novel, Death of a Bookseller, is out NOW! So obviously Bethany had to ask her all the nosy questions about it!
The lads chat to actual Katherine Heiny
Alice and Bethany have a whale of a time with the funny, smart Katherine Heiny, author of the new collection Games and Rituals, as well as the novels Standard Deviation and Early Morning Riser. Games and Rituals is out now!
These gals are my brain medicine and this podcast makes me so happy. Friends and business partners Alice and Bethany are so fun to listen to, super smart and amusing. A great podcast all round.
Love Bethany Rutter and her good friend and business partner Alice slater.
Helpful and fun
I love the gossip, and I love the inclusion of discussion around personal writing experiences and I love that those things add to the overarching discussions around books they’ve read. Fantastic!
