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.
