Grace Petrie

Season 7, Episode 8

This week Robin is joined by singer-songwriter Grace Petrie to talk about her major literary influences on her work. In a bit of a departure from a normal episode, not only is it recorded in a kitchen, but the episode is also punctuated with some of Grace’s music. They chat about the influences of Shakespeare, Harper Lee and Supergirl comics.

This is the final episode recorded during Josie’s bout of sickness and tourness. From next week it’s all back to Robin and Josie shambling together.

The Cosmic Superheroes exhibition they chat about will be on tour later this year in the UK and you can view some of the images at And don’t forget you can support the show at
