RENDANG by Will Harris has been revealed as our new Book Club book! Flo Reynolds returns to the pod to introduce the book and why it’s been selected for the book club. They also give some great tips for beginners on how to read poetry, so if you’re more used to fiction and non-fiction don’t feel like you need to sit this one out.

Hosted by Steph McKenna and Simon Jones.
