Brief chat

This is a nice little chat about Dickens and Jacobi, but I wouldn't say it was 'interesting' as such - turn on Radio 4 and you'll probably hear a more directed/engaging conversation.

If you're a Dickens/Jacobi fan, by all means, give it a listen; otherwise, it's free background listening & as long as you keep your sights set low, it will serve well enough for that purpose.

Short but informative podcast episode

Derek Jacobi is one of, if not THE, best audiobook narrators I have listened to. This podcast is full of some excellent info on the great actor. Even though much time is spent on his project "Martin Chuzzlewit," there is more to this little podcast than just Dickens. The piece flew by. However, every moment was worth it. I definitely recommend.
