Our pick of literary podcasts

Good Morning!!

This past week has been a buzz of activity at The Podium, and yesterday was an absolute blast!

Wondering why we are so stoked??

Well, we released the 7th Episode of our flagship podcast Founder Thesis featuring Akash Gehani of Instamojo. Plus we also released another scintillating episode of Manto Ki Mastiyan, on our storytelling podcast Kahaniyon Ka Guccha.

But, here’s the catch… We did not stop at that and dived straight into the launch of a brand new podcast show called Beyond Campus!!!

In partnership with Unnati, Beyond Campus is where we aim to spark curiosity and expose the listeners to a range of career options. We want to encourage our youth to break the mold and do the extraordinary!

Listen to the first episode featuring Pranay Prakash of Delhivery, where we explore careers in logistic- tech startups here.

Also, how was your week? We hope it was just as great as ours.

So, now that weekend is finally here, we are going to settle in for a more relaxed vibe – possibly with a glass of vine and some good old books.

Talking of books, this week we are rounding up some of the best literary podcasts out there for all you literature buffs & future writers.

So without much ado let’s dive straight into it…

1. The History of Literature

As the name suggests this podcast explores just that – The History of Literature. Answering questions such as How did literature develop? What forms has it taken? And what can we learn from the age-old works of literature? Hosted by Jacke Wilson this podcast takes a look at some of the most compelling works of literary genius – be it ancient epic poetry or contemporary novels.
