The Bookshop Podcast: a podcast hosted by Mandy Jackson-Beverly, a self-confessed bibliophile.
Mandy believes independent bookshops are the gems of communities. Each Monday, the host chats with bookshop
owners and managers to discover why they entered the bookselling world and what makes their stores unique.
On Wednesdays, Mandy interviews authors and specialists in the humanities and the environment.
Monthly, Mandy chats with Stephanie Stillo, Curator, Rare Book, and Special Collections Division at the Library of Congress. They discuss exhibits, what's going on behind the scenes, From the Vaults! and introduce you to the people working to protect and curate the vast collections and explain how you can benefit from their work.
