Iain's Book Club podcast was launched in September 2018. Each week (sometimes twice a week) Iain interviews some of the most interesting authors in the country with new books out. And there's the occasional bonus episode or an author interviews from the archives. 

You can download and subscribe to the podcast on the Global Player App, iTunes, Google Podcasts, PlayerFM, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts from. The podcast is now also available on Alexa. Instruct Alexa to "open the Global Player App" and then say "Alexa, play Iain Dale's Book Club podcast on Global Player".
