KaravanCast, Episode 1 – King Solomon’s Mines


Here is the first “proper” episode of the KaravanCast.
Following the suggestions provided by many listeners (thanks!), I ditched the proposed structure and went for a leaner, tighter episode design.

This … programme? post? cast? … anyway, today I take a quick look at Henry Rider Haggard’s King Solomon’s Mines and its legacy, including some odds and ends.


My voice is ugly, my pronunciation abysmal, but what the heck, it’s a start.

Hope you like it – comments welcome!

  1. More please.

    Seriously, even using a second language you did a better job being informative and entertaining than any of the English-speakers I’ve listened to on the subject of the Pulp Adventure genre. You are the Joseph Conrad of podcasting.

    Just let me know when you are going to start Skyping in guests, because I volunteer!
