New podcast and website for Down the Rabbit Hole

The founders of Down the Rabbit Hole, the radio show about children’s books, are launching a new website and podcast to mark its Autumn 2016 season.

The website, with new artwork by Rebecca Cobb, will host the radio show, as well as a new blog of book recommendations and extra features, whilst the new podcast will launch today on iTunes.

Listeners will also be able to sign up to a Down the Rabbit Hole newsletter.

Author Katherine Woodfine, who co-founded the show with Louise Lamont and Waterstones' Melissa Cox, said: “It has been wonderful to see Down the Rabbit Hole grow and flourish, and to see so much enthusiasm for the show from authors, illustrators, publishers and readers alike. Now more than ever we are in real need of space to discuss and celebrate books for children: we hope that our new website, podcast and newsletter will offer new ways to help us reach listeners and readers,and to start up even more conversations about children’s books.”

The first episode of the autumn season will air today (27th Septmeber) at 5pm and feature an interview with Clare Balding about her new children’s book, The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop (Penguin Children’s Books).
