Podcasting with Jane – Dear Bitches, Smart Authors Podcast

This isn’t a podcast I listen to regularly, (I read the blog) but this was one interview I couldn’t pass up listening too. Sarah, the host of the podcast interviewed Juliette Wells, the editor and annotator of the 200th-anniversary edition of Emma.

You can find the podcast and show notes here.

Some highlights-

  • Juliette talks about how ‘hard’ it is to work at Goucher where they have a collection of rare Jane Austen editions.
  • She talks about getting to edit Emma for the whole year celebration (1815/1816).
  • She talks about the code in reading Jane, so the way you can’t just read the words, you have to understand the subtilties and wittiness of the writing. 
  • Juliette reveals which actor is her favorite Darcy.
  • She discusses some recent P&P adaptations.
  • She talks about the founding of JASNA and the AGM.

Happy Listening!
