Podcast Episode #12: Points of View

August 21, 2014 Podcast 1


Welcome to the twelfth episode of the Tea in the Treetops podcast hosted by Philippa and Angelya.

This episode is perhaps unusually quiet as our little ones were both asleep while we recorded! We discuss how authors use different points of view to tell their stories, we do a joint review of Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas (Throne of Glass #3), and we talk about some upcoming TV series and movies that we are keen to see.

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear your feedback – anything you would like us to talk about in particular? Just let us know!

You can listen to past episodes of the podcast, as well as the various ways to subscribe on the main podcast page.
