Overview: This podcast is a combination of two interviews in celebration of the bicentennial of Austen’s death. The first interview is with Sara Pascoe and delves into her stage adaptation of Pride and Prejudice at the Nottingham Playhouse. She discusses her desire to bring conversations about how Austen framed the role of women to the forefront and how modern audiences, especially teenage girls, interact with Austen’s novels. The second interview is with historian Lucy Worsley about her research on “home” and heroines in Austen’s novels. Her work discusses the various places where Austen lived and how the focus on money in all six novels can be read as a result of Austen’s own social class. Rounded out by a discussion of the best Austen novels, this podcast is a great way to hear about Austen’s modern legacy.
