One Book at a Time

Manchester University Press has launched their new podcast, One Book at a Time.

The idea of the podcast is to encourage people to slow down and consider important social issues and histories, which we think reflects one of the major benefits of reading a university press book; packed full of carefully considered arguments, frontline thinking, and original voices. We hope the podcast offers an experience equivalent to exercising your brain in the open air, rather than the 100-metre mad dash of internet skimming. The podcast’s aim, and name, also speaks to MUP's wider mission of changing the world one book at a time.

Written by expert authors and creative thinkers, books published by MUP nurture powerful narratives, immersive histories, and intimate biographies. The podcast has been carefully curated to reflect these characteristics and provide listeners with a compelling and immersive experience that amplifies the unique tone and voice of our authors. The podcast will reflect on the shared interests between academia and society, highlighting how academics are actively tackling some of society’s biggest issues and contested subjects.

This first series consists of six episodes, each one focussing on a different book from MUP’s burgeoning trade non-fiction list. Each episode features a conversation with an author, hosted either by one of MUP's editors or an expert in the field.

The series has been recorded and edited by Rob Cave, who previously produced documentaries for BBC Radio and World Service.
