For the 82nd Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined by lecturer, podcaster and musician Martin Zaltz Austwick. They share their love of eggs, talk about a perceived need to justify a love of fantasy literature and discuss cluster memories. Incidentally, Martin’s song choice would have been No Children from the album Tallahasse by John Darnielle’s group The Mountain Goats. The podcasts that Martin is involved in making are: Answer Me This, Song By Song, Brain Train and The Global Lab.

Charles Adrian also discusses fantasy literature in Page One 73.

Another book by Ursula K. Le Guin, The Disposessed, is discussed in Page One 38.

Other writing by Margaret Atwood is discussed in Page One 47 (Alias Grace), Page One 86 (Forty Years Ago And Forty Years Ahead), Page One 95 (Hair Jewellery) and Page One 146 (The Penelopiad).

Episode released: 1st March, 2016.
