All About Agatha (Christie)Pro Unlimited Agatha Christie
The Agatha Christie fans out there — and they are legion — will want to join in on this weekly podcast, All About Agatha, that is devoted exclusively to the author whose popularity remains undiminished even 40 years after her death.
The podcast features Linda Brobeck and Kemper Donovan, and here’s the way they describe what they are doing:
Every month we revisit one of (Christie’s) novels in the order they were first published in the UK. Discussions range from plotting and interpretation to the impact of the beloved adaptations to an attempt at ranking them all. On the weeks in between, we take a breather to discuss one of her many (100-plus) short stories, plays, non-mystery novels, and notable periods in her life.
Christie wrote sixty-six novels and more than 100 plays, short stories, non-mystery novels, and commentaries. She also lived an interesting and somewhat mysterious life. Despite this huge output, some people can’t get enough. Brobeck and Donnovan give you a lot, however. In many of the podcasts, they take her novels apart piece by piece, often explaining and expanding based on their extensive and close reading of Christie’s books.
If you are a Christiephile, this podcast is for you.
