Description

My Cousin Jane is a podcast produced by Jane Austen's cousin—well, her 8th cousin, 6 times removed—Lee Falin, about the life and works of Jane Austen. Rather than explore the "literary themes and ethos of Jane Austen", or something else you might hear about in a graduate level English Lit class, My Cousin Jane presents a light hearted, chapter-by-chapter collection of segments that one could think of as the "Deleted Scenes" or "Bonus Features" of Austen's works. With any luck, you'll come away both entertained, and with an enriched appreciation and understanding of the life and works of My Cousin Jane.
