Georgette Heyer's Regency romances discussed book-by-amazing-book




Ep 5 - Sylvester

We've got romance brewing in a snowbound inn. We've got a brief jaunt to France with a side helping of casual French-bashing. And we've got a whole lot of affection for young Tom Orde. We also ask how much involvement is it appropriate for a mother to have in her son's love life. And if you're looking for a peerless Regency chat-up line, we're your wingmen. Oh, and of course - eyebrow chat. “It was strange how the dullest party could be enjoyed because there was one person present whose...


Ep 4 - Friday's Child

In which we enjoy the company of gentleman - Ferdy and Gil to be precise, and object to Miss Wantage's demotion from Hero to Kitten. With a classic denouement and a nemesis on the loose, we've only got one question for you... Do YOU know a bishop? "You know what I think? Fate! That's what it is fate! There's a thing that comes after a fellow: got a name, but I forgot what it is. Creeps up behind him, and puts him in the basket when he ain't expecting it." Instagram:...


Ep 3 - The Black Moth

We're going Georgian in this episode with The Black Moth. Dashing highwaymen, eyebrow stencilling, and a flexible legal system. Plus answering the question: just how villainous do we want our villains? Let's make an elegant leg and get stuck in. "You are like a, like a fish, with no more love in you than a fish, and no more heart than a fish." Instagram: @georgetteheyerpodcast Twitter: @heyerpodcast


Ep 2 - Black Sheep

After the high adventure of The Unknown Ajax we turn to a more romantic story - Black Sheep. We talk invalidish ladies, lovesick teens, dastardly fortune hunters, career opportunities for former sex workers, and Austen similarities. 'Talking to you is like, like talking to an eel!' 'No is it? I've never tried talking to an eel. Isn't it a waste of time?' Instagram: @georgetteheyerpodcast Twitter: @heyerpodcast


Ep 1 - The Unknown Ajax

How do you pick the first Heyer book to discuss? You give it very little thought and just plunge in with a solid one. So here we are with The Unknown Ajax. You’ll hear us discuss the magnificent Lady Aurelia as a role model for modern women, fangirl over the peerless and mistreated Claude, and ponder Sean Bean’s height. Also, Rach makes a Michael Gambon revelation, and Su tries out a Yorkshire accent. She is wrong to do so. "I have nothing further to add, except that I shall immediately...



Hoping for an educational and informative podcast about the queen of Regency romance? This isn’t that. This is two old school friends talking about a different Georgette Heyer book every episode. Giggling at anyone called Fanny, mispronouncing Marquess, and making appalling attempts at accents. It’s not researched or professional, at all, but it is brought to you by a couple of idiots who bloody love Georgette Heyer. Is it for you? If you’ve never read any Heyer, probably not. If you’ve...
