Podcast renaissance

There's been a great podcast renaissance of late and in episode two of our Man Booker Prize 2016 podcast series we explore their resurgence with three wonderful guests.

Our host Joe Haddow is joined by the stars of NTS Radio talk show Literary Friction, Carrie Plitt and Octavia Bright, who equate a good podcast to the best dinner party ever and reveal which Man Booker Prize author they would love to interview.

Also in the episode, we take you through a snippet of each book on the 2016 longlist and Joe catches up with Harry Shearer, Spinal Tap legend, voice of The Simpsons and host of Le Show, who talks podcasts, politics and books (and how Melvyn Bragg helps him sleep).

You can listen to the series on iTunes and SoundCloud, where episodes are released on alternate Friday mornings through to the winner announcement on 25 October.
