The Hobcast Book Show has been nominated as one of twenty of the best UK Mystery Podcasts of 2021 by Best Startup.
Is there one thread that binds us all? A link through history that explains the human experience? These are some of the themes tackled by Hobeck author Olly Jarvis in his brilliant new thriller, The Genesis Inquiry. Described by Stephen Fry as a 'compulsively readable legal thriller', the novel introduces care-worn barrister Ella Blake, who's hired to investigate the disappearance of a brilliant Cambridge academic, and unearths a conspiracy to keep world-changing revelations a secret. Olly draws on his own background as a leading UK criminal barrister in his writing, and we discuss the challenges he faces day-to-day in a justice system creaking through over-work and under-funding. Also this week, Adrian and Rebecca debate if it's ever acceptable to ask Waterstones to display your book, and ask the biggest question of all - is Sir Michael Caine really retiring?
In The Hobcast Book Show, Adrian Hobart and Rebecca Collins, the founders of Hobeck, aim to get under the skin of launching a publishing company from scratch in the midst of the pandemic.
Each week, Adrian and Rebecca will discuss the key issues of the week, the ups and downs of running a creative business, and they'll hear from the people who make Hobeck possible: the authors, the editors and the cover designers who help them bring great stories to life.
If you're an aspiring author, self-publishing, working in independent or traditional publishing, or just love books - this is the podcast for you.
