‘This companion podcast to the excellent quarterly periodical is a must listen for avid readers – and if you haven’t checked out the magazine you should do that too, not least for its gorgeous cover art.
Like the equally brilliant Backlisted Podcast, Slightly Foxed introduces readers to books that are no longer new but have lasting appeal.
Contributors to the magazine discuss an author in depth per episode – everyone from Sylvia Plath to graphic novel illustrator Posy Simmonds – while recommending others whose work ties in.
The conversations are warm and illuminating, and guaranteed to add to your ever growing ‘to-read’ pile.
Where to start: Angela Carter’s brand of magical realism is a fascinating place to kick-off your listening in an episode that reveals her efforts to escape a controlling mother.’
