    Episode 62: The Saga of Darren Shan

    Episode 62: The Saga of Darren Shan

    When you look at your bookcase - filled with books you've already read - do you only see a log of all of the things you've read before? We're here to inspire you to look at that bookcase and see the potential for all of the rereads you could be doing. To lead the way, it's time to talk about one of Mark's favourite series from his childhood.

    This month we talk about The Saga of Darren Shan.

    Come and listen to us talk about the need for emotional nuance, why you shouldn't feel shame about what you like, and we predict when Sophie will be crushed by her to-read pile.

    Episode 61: Legendborn

    A lot of the same complaints get leveed at YA books. Have you ever lamented that the main character is too bland? Have you ever cried to the heavens that the classic love triangle is no good? Have you ever thought a book was almost the best book you've ever read, but the main character didn't pick up a sword?
     
    Have we got the book for you.

    This month we talk about Legendborn.

    Come and listen to us talk about complicated feelings, picking what you want from myths, and redefining just who gets to be legendary.

    Episode 60: Howl's Moving Castle

    If you woke up and suddenly found that you were an old lady, what would you do? Call an ambulance because you've clearly lost your mind? Make a plan to hunt down the person who did it to you? No. Of course not. You go and join the family of a roaming mad wizard.
    This month we talk about Howl's Moving Castle.
    Come and listen to us talk about old women in fiction, chaotic magic and wandering as a method of finding yourself.

    Snow falls outside your window as you pull the kubanka onto your head. A branch taps gently on the window-frame, rhythmic with its  pattern and making you feel safe; it reminds you of being snuggled up in your mother's arms.
    Suddenly the door busts open and everyone is dead, numbers on lists that were later lost.
    Welcome to Russia following the revolution.
    This month we talk about Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak.
    Come and listen to us talk about atmospheric landscapes, historical fiction and romances where neither party seems particular fussed.

    Episode 57: The Tudors (Interactive Quiz Edition)

    Episode 57: The Tudors (Interactive Quiz Edition)

    This episode is the definitive piece of pop culture about the Tudors. Forget Phillipa Gregory. Forget Alison Weir. Forget Six, the Musical. Hell, forget that Golden Globe-winning BBC series. Forget...wow...there really are lots of adaptations of the Tudor period aren't there?
    Come and listen to us talk about how much murder is too much murder, the Tudor fashion trend we'd like to bring back and, most importantly, funnel-shaped genitalia.
    Sorry about the day late upload. Life unfortunately got in the way.
