Critic Reviews

Score: 4.5

"If The Penguin Podcast sounds like a PR wheeze in which a major publishing house gets to showcase its own product, in some ways it’s exactly that. But it’s also an intimately produced and engaging show in which the actor Richard E. Grant interviews authors and asks them to discuss five objects that were significant in the writing of their latest work."
