  1. I’ve just finished listening to your Podcasts on Pride and Prejudice and i just had to let you both know that I loved it and enjoyed it immensely.

    Listening to your discussions i am inspired to read the book yet again -I’ve forgotten how many times I’ve read it already.
    Thank you for sharing your discussions on Jane Austen books with the rest of us Austenites. ??

  2. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. We have now started recording our Emma season, and hope to have the first episode live some time next month.

  3. I am doing a “Novel to Movie” series on Jane Austen for the library. I cannot tell you how much i love listening to your podcast. When i am reading i long to be there to contest a point with you or engage in discussion. Doing Mansfield right now and i so wish to contest your rather benign view of miss crawford. What a delight it would be to be there. Thanks so much. Please do more. I have listened to several podcasts twice and will be making notes.
