The Slightly Foxed Podcast

‘I have fallen in love with your podcast . . . ’ 

‘I have fallen in love with your podcast and many of the books that you recommend. I need to stop listening however because my list of what I'd like to read only grows and grows! Thank you for being a treasure!’

‘I am looking forward to the next podcast . . .’

‘I am looking forward to the next podcast, they are not only interesting in their own right but it makes me feel I am actually in Hoxton . . . Keep ‘poding’.’

‘I have just finished listening to the most recent podcast . . .’

‘I have just finished listening to the most recent podcast and my only disappointment is that it is not three times as long. It is an absolute pleasure and I look forward to the 15th of every month now.’

‘With a good podcast . . .’

‘I listen to so many Podcasts but these I can’t live without: Futility Closet, the Slightly Foxed podcast, Astonishing Legends and Judge John Hodgman. With a good podcast, you begin to feel you really know the hosts. They are friends you have over for dinner and play board games with.’

‘Listening to the first two podcasts saved my sanity . . .’

‘Listening to the first two podcasts saved my sanity on a very long car trip from Virginia to Texas here in the states. The podcasts made me eagerly anticipate the long winter evenings in the new year with newly discovered books. Wonderful podcasts and I can’t wait to hear more.’

‘Episode 4 of your podcast has turned me into an addict . . . ’

‘Episode 4 of your podcast has turned me into an addict; very, very interesting and you all sound so nice – a counter-blast against the monstrous regiment of politicians we endure every day . . . Very best to you all and of course to the dogs.’

‘I have only just managed to listen to episode 4 of the podcast . . .’

‘I have only just managed to listen to episode 4 of the podcast as I moved house 3 weeks ago. I have been working out where to put my books, which involves difficult decisions. All my working life was spent with books (libraries, retail and library supply) so you might say they are an obsession. Thank you for your journal and the podcasts, both of which I love.’

‘I just wanted to say how very much I’m enjoying your podcast . . .’

‘I just wanted to say how very much I’m enjoying your podcast. What a wonderful idea and so interesting to hear how SF began, too. I'm sure many others have said this, but it really is like sitting around a big table with a group of friends having a chat.’

‘I’m really enjoying the podcasts . . .’

‘I’m really enjoying the podcasts. An oasis of civilized peace in a world that has gone raving mad.’

‘I’m a newish subscriber and have just spent a very happy 30 minutes . . .’

‘I’m a newish subscriber and have just spent a very happy 30 minutes in the company of Gail, Hazel and Steph around their kitchen table listening to how Slightly Foxed started. I’m not usually a podcast person but this is so different and so delightful it’s like being an invisible guest in someone else’s home. It’s so much more fun than reading book reviews onscreen and fascinating to hear what each of you is currently reading. I shall become an avid and regular listener to the podcasts and I'm looking forward to the next one already.’

‘Absolutely loving the podcasts . . .’

‘Absolutely loving the podcasts. More, more, please!’

‘I have just listened to your podcast . . .’

‘I have just listened to your podcast! Well done, it’s wonderful.’

‘Thank you so much for podcast episode 3 . . .’

‘Thank you so much for podcast episode 3 - your podcasts gather strength with each edition. Love hearing your voices, the sound effects too, and all the booksy news. A great treat and perfect to listen to while doing the physio's exercises for a bad back - positively curative!’

‘I don’t listen to many podcasts but . . .’

‘Hi Ladies, I don’t listen to many podcasts but really enjoyed Stet and the books discussed as well as editing of which I do some in a slightly amateurish way. I wonder if you are considering publishing Diana Athill’s Stet - I’d certainly buy it! Thank you for your lovely literary ideas.’
