Why I Really Like This Book

Roifield Brown March 8, 2014

Podcaster Kate Macdonald


Why I Really Like This Book

Why I Really Like This Book is a stealth history podcast. Listeners may think they are tuning in to 10-minute weekly or fortnightly podcasts that talk about forgotten novels and authors we should remember, but really they’re being given a dose of delicious literary history. Kate Macdonald has been a browser in second-hand bookshops all her life, teaches poetry and literary history to university students, and researches and publishes on twentieth-century British publishing history. The podcasts can be listened to in their themed series, or you can download them in any order you want. Coming up for summer 2014: ‘Retelling History: novels and stories based on historical events’.
