The Austen Connection

Here at ED we are all about podcasts about Jane (and the Brontes of course) so it should be no surprise that we’ve found another podcast with an accompanying newsletter: The Austen Connection.

Inspired by her deep dive into all things Jane, creator Janet Saidi wants to  “…convene a lively conversation around the stories of this iconic novelist, and to uncover the unexpected themes that are hiding in plain sight and have so much relevance to our complicated lives today.” Her essays have tackled topics such as discussions an Austen biographer Claire Tomalin; how Jane would handle being on The Bachelorette; and What Michelle Obama and Lizzy Bennet Both Know.

Divering, indeed!
