Burley Fisher's Isolation Station: A Podcast You Can Read

By Burley Fisher Books

By Burley Fisher Books

It's lockdown, they said. Close the bookstore, they said. Were we defeated? 

No way. We started a podcast on 21 March 2020, to do what we do best: chat shit about books… I mean, keep in touch with all the readers and writers in our community.

Since then, in the etherial world of Burley Fisher's Isolation Station we've hung out with storytellers, historians, booksellers, games designers, musicians, zinesters, plague specialists, activists, photographers, sex workers, publishers and poets from around the world. 

Listen to the incredible conversations and readings, and celebrate the generosity of all the people sharing them with us by buying their books – find the episode links in the annotations!
