Fifty Shades of Real
Winner of the Orange Prize for New Writers, tonight’s guest Joanna Kavenna exemplifies much that’s best about new British authors: smart, savvy, sassy and scintillating. “With her pale skin and angular features”, observed one critic, ” she even looks like Virginia Woolf”!
Joanna’s latest book, Come To the Edge, is a caustic satire of the British passion for second homes… for the 1%, that is. But our conversation touches on the wilder shores of Ultima Thule, the tastelessness of childbirth, and the McDonalds® Military-Industrial® Olympics®.

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.

Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
