Episode 3: Alice Slater

May 31, 2017, 11:04 PM

In this episode, I talk to my longtime friend Alice Slater about two great things: LiveJournal and books. She's a bookseller at Waterstones Gower Street and has flawless literary taste. We talk you through the appeal of now-dead journalling platform LiveJournal, go deep on thrillers, talk about Erin Kelly too much and Alice confesses a book-related crime she committed that endured for many years.
