The Mr B's Podcast

We invite you to turn your laptop on, plug in your earphones, and spend (up to) 20 wondrous minutes in the company of books and the Mr B’s Team. Our monthly podcast comes to you in two forms: in our Mr B’s at Home episodes our Jess meets up with two members of the team who will tell you all about their favourite books of the moment, and treat you to a short excerpt from a few of them to tease your reading taste buds. ‘Mr B’s Guests’ is our series of recordings with guest authors - perfect if you’re far away from Bath and missing that Mr B’s event feel! Whether on a train, on your morning run or - why not - in the bath (as long as you keep your electronic devises dry!) our short podcast is the perfect companion for a busy book-loving life.

In our first Mr B’s Guests episode Jess talks to Katrine Marçal, feminist journalist and author of Who Cooked Adam Smith’s Dinner – a brilliantly witty and eye-opening look at the myth of ‘economic man’ and how this character shapes the world we live in. Earlier in the year Katrine visited the bookshop for a sold-out event. Here she tells us about which feminist writers have inspired her, the imaginative new titles of her book in different languages around the world, and the not-so-obvious importance of Winnie The Pooh for a book on economics.
