Heyer based Podcasts

After writing about 'A Civil Contract', and trying to concentrate on reading new books rather than going on a Georgette Heyer binge I've sort of reached a compromise with myself. I found a couple of podcasts about Heyer and her work which I can listen to whilst I'm knitting.

I can't say it's really worked for me as I'm currently reading Devil's Cub for the umpteenth time (my copy from something like 1987 which is on the point of disintegration) and not knitting. Both podcasts seem like fun from the episodes I've listened to so far, so if anyone else wants a failed diversionary tactic - here you go...

Heyer Today is here

and The Georgette Heyer podcast is here

there's also Backlisted discussing Venetia here

I'd love to know if there are more and if they're any good.


  1. Thanks for these! I'm always excited for more Heyer talk. I've listed to (and loved) the Backlisted episode on Venetia but the other two podcasts are brand new to me.

    1. I’ve only listened to a couple of episodes, but so far both seem fun. It’s quite reassuring to realise that people obviously younger than me still enjoy her. I’ll never not love her, but do sometimes wonder if she would seem hopelessly old fashioned to someone 20 or 30 years younger.
