Podcasts and newsletters have a lot in common: each one develops its own voice and character, and gets delivered into its audience’s private spaces: ears and email inbox. Caroline and I discuss how both are a good substitute for having your own column.

Update: it's out! Spotify link in bio 👆👆👆 Excited to announce that the next guest on the #podcast is writer, podcaster and professional pod-enthusiast, @cacrampton! We talk about her upcoming book, The Way to the Sea, her parents' amazing voyage from South Africa to southern England (were they analogue nomads?) and, of course, her podcast @Shedunnitshow, now nominated for Smartest Podcast @britishpodcastawards.
Caroline’s got a book coming out in June, The Way to the Sea, and its topics include the Thames Estuary, which leads out of London to her childhood home in Kent, and is where her parents first pitched up in England over 30 years ago, after sailing over from apartheid-era South Africa. What do immigrants become after spending over half their lives in the new country, and brining up children who are more of the new land than the old? Maybe we need a new word?
Caroline is also a podcaster, with the British Podcast Awards-nominated Shedunnit, which take a deep dive into the real stories behind classic crime fiction. It’s up for a prize in the Smartest Podcast category, so one to try if you like crime fiction and also feeling S-M-R-T. Wait. Was that a Simpsons joke?
