We're meandering around the subject of how foreigners were written about in times gone by, but mainly we're talking about what it's like having 'brothers from another motherland' (sorry) and how to not be an absolute dick in our modern era where building walls and voting Brexit are commonplace.

Following on from last week's episode, Emily and Tay are chatting about two writers who authored works about the same place but in very different ways. One writer was born and raised in a tiny place called Penryn (in Cornwall, UK), and then other meandered through it - how does living in a place verses walking through it change the way we talk about it? There will also be an intense discussion of the right way to make an English cream tea. Find out more at http://firecountry.org

Ok we don't mean old people, we mean ancient people from the 17th century. This is the podcast all about renaissance literature and travel, which is a *huge* topic (!) and has so many fun twists and turns that we can't wait to talk you through. Join Emily on this very first episode as she and special guest Tay take a look at WHY renaissance literature is so interesting.
