About the Podcast
What the Austen? Podcast is a podcast dedicated to analysing Jane Austen's work and is hosted by Izzy Meakin. Every other week Izzy, and a friend and fellow Janeite will analyse her novels and characters from the dreamy to the slightly strange (Mr. Collins we are looking at you), whilst making reference to the adaptions which have been inspired by her work. We hope you will listen in each month, and join the Janeite tribe as we have the best time laughing and talking about our favourite novels.
A note from the Host
I wanted to create a podcast where Janeites can come together to analyse Jane Austen's novels. Where we can chat about characters, themes and all around have the conversation we have been having alone in our heads for years.
For me Jane Austen is for everyone and I wanted my podcast to reflect that, I work to make this space inclusive and welcoming to all.
It is a place where we can share, change and develop our ideas and all the while making lasting friendships.
This podcast from the start has been a real labour of love and I am so grateful to all my guest and followers all of which are true friends now! You have given me something incredible... a community and I hope I have given you the same in return.
