The Mr B's Podcast
About This Show
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.

Pinnacle Clubs: writing about mountains
This month we talk literary peaks and mighty vistas in some of our current favourites, starting with an interview with author Dan Richards. Dan is a long-time friend of Mr B’s and author of Climbing Days, a remarkable journey in the foot-steps of the pioneering mountaineer Dorothy Pilley. Our Juliette Bottomley and Lucinda Corby also share some striking examples of novels in which mountains represent the utmost freedom as well as the depths of the underworld. Hosted by Jessica Johannesson Music by The Bookshop Band Books and authors mentioned in this podcast: Climbing Days by Dan Richards Down to the Sea in Ships by Horatio Clare Trieste & The Meaning Of Nowhere by Jan Morris A Whole Life by Robert Seethaler Hell is Empty by Craig Johnson Mountains of the Mind by Robert MacFarlane
