Episode 32: The Unauthorised Menace

Episode 32

Join us this week as Nathan talks seemingly endlessly about Star Wars - no, not even the new one, but about the prequel trilogy, digital effects, and the curse of the 1990s. Sarah has been reading Jonathan Bate's biography of Ted Hughes, a very sharp look at a titanic talent and an utter bastard, and Sarah has also reviewed Samantha Hunt's new novel Mr Splitfoot and did not like it, which leads to a discussion about how critics feel when they need to be mean about things (poor us!) and, inexplicably, a blow-by-blow summary of several episodes of Adam Buxton's new podcast. Sorry.
