For the 74th Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined by playwright, performer and accidental sex-positivity educator, advocate and activist Cameryn Moore. They talk about the level of detail in some rich historical fantasy, some of the advantages of a really big tea cup and the realisation that people write creatively about their food experiences.

Apologies for the phone that buzzes at 5:50; this is the result of a schoolboy error on the part of Charles Adrian, who did not put his phone in airplane mode.

Another book by Sarah Perry, The Essex Serpent, is discussed in Page One 142.

This episode features a jingle written for the podcast by the band Friends Of Friends; you can find some of their music here.
