Welcome to the Mr B’s Podcast!

We invite you to turn your laptop on, plug in your earphones, and spend half an hour in the company of the Mr B’s Team and their favourite books.

Whether on a train, on your morning run or in the bath (as long as you keep your electronic devices dry!) our short podcast is the perfect companion for a busy book-loving life. 

Keep an eye on Twitter, Facebook and the Mr B's newsletter where we announce every new episode!








The novel Dodgers was one of our favourite novels of 2016, a surprising and elegantly-tuned coming of age story disguised as a crime novel. Jess talks to its author Bill Beverly about the road trip at the centre of the story, and we recommend other superb reads which will take you off the beaten track, and unto the unending road.

Hosted by Jessica Johannesson

Music: 'Star of the River' by The Bookshop Band
