  • Douglas-Fairhurst is wonderful

    The ever fascinating Robert Douglas-Fairhurst was a great guest and the subsequent episode with Borch Jacobsen was intriguing and soberly radical. Excellent podcast.

  • Worthy and misses the point

    I’m not sure why this is called ‘The Book Club’, it seems to mainly be talking about talking about the books people are talking about.

  • Wonderful surprise

    All the interviews on this podcast are typically informative and well done as a rule however I just had a good surprise today. Tessa Dunlop was interviewed about Army Girls. I didn’t expect it to be as fascinating and vivid as it turned out to be—nothing negative about her of course —it’s just that military topics are not usually what I turn to with interest. She was outstanding and I loved every minute of the interview. Can’t wait to get the book now.
