What a great literary pod!

Love it!

S1 Starts slow, gets great, took too long for season 2

Very glad season 2 of this podcast is on its way. Season 1 started a little weak. If you start with episode 1, you’ll be disappointed. Start with S1 episode 12 and work back. No story arch, so nothing lost by working back in this way.

I can’t remember exactly when but at some point this podcast became amazing. The treasure trove of TPR archive is put to work with taste, timing and skill.

If you listen to Granta or other like publication’s podcasts, this one is a million miles better - it just didn’t start that way.

I assumed they’d given up on the podcast as season 2 has been a long time coming. If it is as good as the later part of season 1, we are all in for a treat.

Will this ghastly immersion return?
