This episode was recorded early last year but it was never released. We are currently recording new episodes and we're excited to start sharing our love for books with you again. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this episode as we share some of our favourite reads from 2020. We talk Muslim romance books, lack of representation in the publishing industry and what it means to be an activist. We end on a discussion of Right-wing ideology based on Douglas Murray's 'The Strange Death of Europe'. As always, we would love to hear your feedback and comments at bookversationspod@gmail.com


Fact-checking notes



  1. We mentioned that 90% of people in the UK publishing industry are white, according to the latest survey, the figure is 85%. You can read more here: https://www.publishers.org.uk/publications/diversity-survey-of-the-publishing-workforce-2019/

  2. In reference to the proportion of BAME health workers impacted by COVID. We incorrectly mentioned it was 90% overall. The breakdown of the figures can be found in the GM Journal. 'Figures from the British Medical Association in June showed that although only 21% of all staff are BAME, 63% of healthcare workers who died were from an ethnic group. Of this, 64% of nurses and 95% of doctors who died were BAME.' https://www.gmjournal.co.uk/what-is-the-science-behind-the-disproportionate-impact-of-covid-19-on-bame-groups
