A pleasing terror!

One of my favorite podcasts of all time. Lovely readings and sound design combined with smart and funny discussion just academic enough to make Monty proud. They sometimes have guests and I really love the sense you get of the wider community of MR James fans out there writing Ghosts and Scholars articles and traveling to Jamesian locations and all the creative people inspired by him. I’m so glad they’ve continued doing new episodes after they finished all of MR James’ stories.

Fantastic podcast- so excited you’re back

There is a new episode! Thank you. I listen to the old episodes again and again, I am working my way through all the google maps and other link suggestions, have bought the BBC DVD compilation, also bought A Pleasing Terror, have the golf article, and even listen to the stories while solo backpacking. That actually got spooky.

Adore the occasional references to Blackadder and Dad’s Army, and Allo Allo, Wodehouse etc. it is as if you have all the cultural references of my youth. 42 anybody?

Saving the new episode for my birthday (tomorrow). Just wish I could buy a T-shirt.

Keep up the good work!

The best

I'm embarrassed that it's taken me so long to leave a review for this remarkable podcast. I've listened since the first episode and this one easily ranks as my favorite podcast -- and since I have two of my own, that's saying something.

The hosts have just the right mixture of knowledge and wit. They discover elements in James's stories that I'd never noticed, although I've read the entire canon several times. It's fun and enlightening and more.

I can't think of any way to improve "A Podcast to the Curious" unless if it became a weekly. Yeah, I know, unlikely.
