In the spring 2021 season of the podcast we’re exploring stories about things passed on, inherited things, essentially, in a wide range of books. Wondering what what will be the lasting legacy of the pandemic, talking about who gets to write history, and discussing the legacy of environmental destruction, we start this season off – as usual – with a huge question in search for stories of any size.

In the second episode of the Legacy Season, Tom Mooney sits down for a virtual chat with novelist Michael Christie, author of the gorgeous novel Greenwood. We hope you enjoy this transatlantic conversation about the challenges of home-schooling, family-trees and families in trees, climate collapse and the entanglement of all life. 

Hosted by Tom Mooney with music by The Bookshop Band
