First podcast episode available online here.
Episode One: I sit down with Montreal writer, Tess Fragoulis, who talks about her latest novel, The Goodtime Girl. The book is a fascinating historical tale set in the Ottoman Empire of the early 20th century and chronicles the life of a young girl as she fights to survive in the rough and tumble streets of suburban Athens.
In the same episode, I talk to Vancouver writer, Peter Tupper, about a piece in a recent issue of Maisonneuve Magazine , telling the story of a sensationalist piece of writing from the early 19th century by a former nun. It became a best-seller and caused a public uproar along the East Coast of the US.
