Welcome to the podcast that’s curiously specific about dates and locations in well-known books.

Every episode we take a book out for a walk into the wild. We track down the places described and check all times and dates mentioned – ensuring that no great writer ever gets away with simply making things up.


If you really want to enjoy all the benefits of being a member of our Club, hassle-free, you need to come and support us at https://www.patreon.com/curiouslyspecific

For just £2, you’ll get priority access to all our podcasts, as soon as they’re available, and without ads. We’ll also be recording extra content just for patrons.

We’ll also give you access to all our research, including web links and notes, as well as photos and videos of all the places we visit.

For just £9, you can join the Book Club community, allowing you to ask us questions via email and share your own opinions and ideas about the books we cover and the places we go.


The podcast is available for free on all major podcasting platforms just by searching for ‘curiously specific’. On iTunes it’s here

But the latest series has ads and you’ll have to wait a week before getting hold of part 2 of any episode – and you’ll have none of our show notes, videos or maps.
