‘As eccentric as any of Lytton Strachey’s Victorians’ | The Best Book Podcasts for Literary Fans

‘I beg your indulgence for one podcast that is as eccentric as any of Lytton Strachey’s Victorians, a podcast that grew out of a small British literary quarterly whose name refers to the used-and-antiquarian bookseller’s term for volumes that have a slight brownish tinge on the edge of their pages . . .

The magazine and its podcast focus on the types of British authors and preoccupations that will have you eager to curl up in a club chair with a cuppa and a bikkie, the better to concentrate on narratives about Barbara Pym, Evelyn Waugh, Francis Spufford, unusual bookshops, and more.’
We’re thrilled that the Slightly Foxed Podcast is one of Bethanne Patrick’s top book pod picks over on Pocket Casts. Bethanne is a book critic for NPR, Los Angeles Times and The Boston Globe and is the host of the literary crime podcast, Missing Pages. She is also an influencer in the social media book realm @TheBookMaven.
