Audiobooks & Angela Savage on switching genres, PhDs & writing community.

Audiobooks. Do you listen? How? Where? And what are your faves? If you’re a published author, have you listened to your own? Kate and Katherine struggled to listen to theirs, but bring you a snippet of both The Helpline audiobook and Skylarking. Among other things, they discuss the delights of listening to (anything with) Stephen Fry on long car trips, and the joys of beautifully created audiobooks such as Kate’s fave The Chimes by Anna Smail.

They also FINALLY discuss Kate’s book news!
