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.

Feb 15, 2017

The Mr B’s Podcast is back after its Christmas/New Year hiatus when we were all busy placing books into the hands of readers from dawn till dusk. It has returned with a slight difference.

From now on, each podcast will be based on a theme (think time travel, think revolutions and political upheaval, think the great tradition of letters written to people’s pets…we shall try!), and they will include a short author interview as well as one of our signature Mr B’s team book chats. Every episode is also accompanied by a unique reading list for your perusal.

 To start off the year, we’re chatting to S.E. Lister about her book The Immortals – a story where time is treated as place and the characters negotiate both in their attempts to find a home.  Jess, Nic and Emma also re-visit some time-bending favourites – novels where history does not work in the usual way.

Music by The Bookshop Band
