The Comma Press Podcast

We are delighted to be able to bring you The Comma Press Podcast, allowing us to be able to discuss in greater depth the stories we publish. Whether that story is taken from one of our interdisciplinary collections, which involve authors working with scientists, historians, philosophers or crowd scientists. Or whether it's discussing our translated commissions from countries across the globe. It is our hope that through this podcast, you'll get a sense of how the story in question came to be, what influenced the writer, and the wider context that goes into the themes, symbols and characterisation of these tales. 

Series One focuses on our best-selling Protest: Stories of Resistance anthology, and episodes will feature the author and their historical consultant from the collection, alongside a third guest who will be connected to the cause or movement, either directly, or in a more contemporary way, and will be hosted by a Comma editor.
