Ep. 122 How To Breathe Fire With Clare Whitfield

Today we’re joined by author Clare Whitfield for a chat about her book People of Abandoned Character, the truth about the Victorian era, the ongoing mystique of Jack the Ripper, slum tourism, why she’s not watching The Crown, and being taught at university how to breathe fire. We also welcome Denver Public Librarian Amy Delpo back to the show to talk a little Steampunk! This week we also recommend: The Rain Heron by Robbie Arnott, Raft of Stars by Andrew J. Graff, Wizard’s Alley by James Haddock. Plus- Dave is called into the Principal’s office (again), Laura’s dusting for prints, and Andrew teaches his kids about death via a baby bunny.
