Kirsty of Scavenger’s Hoard returns to the show, where we discuss Elizabeth Gaskell’s Victorian social novel North and South.
Beta-read by Charles Dickens, this novel and its 2006 BBC adaptation prompt a full-blown discussion of unions, worker’s rights, and Richard Armitage’s furrowed brow. Join us in waxing poetic on these class-crossed lovers.
