When people mention Jane Austen and the Brontes are everywhere, they weren’t kidding. They have even invaded podcasts!
There are two podcasts you should check out: Manners and Madness (Apple, Spotify) and Bonnets at Dawn (Apple, Spotify).
Manners and Madness is “Two friends, one who loves both Jane Austen and David Lynch, one who is only passingly familiar with both, explore their bodies of work and the adaptations of that work.” An interesting concept to be sure!
Each week, the duo cover either Austen or Lynch of both along with movie reviews and other related content.
Originally started out as an Austen v Bronte podcast, Bonnets at Dawn has widened to now include contemporaries of Austen and Bronte as well as exploring the work of other women writers in the 19th – 21st century. It seems nothing is left unturned. Bonnets at Dawn also do interviews and other reviews.
The creators of Bonnets at Dawn have also released a new book,
Why She Wrote: A Graphic History of the Lives, Inspiration, and Influence Behind the Pens of Classic Women Writers, back in April which needs to go on my TBR pile.
