In this episode, we get excited about two books, one backlist and one new: Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver and This Is What It Sounds Like: What the Music You Love Says About You by Susan Rogers. Then Dave shares three reasons to put the tiny country of San Marino on your must-visit list. [transcript]
Perhaps you’d like to visit the Museum of Vampires and Lycanthropes (Museo Dei Vampiri E Licantropi).
Mel also mentioned the delightfully eerie ghost story Dark Matter by Michelle Paver and the Arctic episode of our podcast.
