The Hobcast Book Show has been nominated as one of twenty of the best UK Mystery Podcasts of 2021 by Best Startup.

It's the big one! This week The Hobcast Book Show comes from the world's biggest crime writing festival, the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Festival set in the grounds of the Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate. Back to full capacity for 2022, the event was a huge success, attracting some of the biggest names in global crime fiction. As you'll hear in this special show, Adrian and Rebecca caught up with some star guests, including this year's winner of the Crime Novel of the Year award, Mick Herron. We also speak to Will Dean, who draws inspiration for his Tuva Moodyson novels from his own life deep in the Swedish forests. And we also catch up with Dame Denise Mina who was the festival's programme director this year, and ask her where she feels Harrogate needs to go next to maintain it's position as the world's most prestigious crime fiction festival. So settle back and enjoy the energy, the sounds, and the gossip from Harrogate 2022.

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.
