Good Reading has published its 200th podcast!

Our podcast with Caroline Petit, author of The Natural History of Love marks our 200th Good Reading podcast!

The Natural History of Love is a work of historical fiction which has been meticulously researched and is based on the lives of the Count de Castelnau and Carolina Fonçeca. From their first meeting in the Brazilian jungle to the Salons of Paris and eventually to Federation-era Melbourne. This is a fascinating story that is set against the backdrop of a time when Darwin's theories were transforming society.

Our podcasts are produced by Gregory Dobbs who in this episode speaks to Caroline Petit about how she went about recreating a love story from old letters and files, the collision between religion, black magic and the natural sciences, and giving a voice to a remarkable woman silenced by the annals of 19th century history.

Our Good Reading podcast aims to help you discover your next read from the variety of authors we interview. From the likes of Jane Caro, Mark Tedeschi, Ruth Wilson and more, we hope you’ve enjoyed listening and stay tuned for more exciting conversations!
