my cousin jane

a podcast about Jane Austen and her works

My Cousin Jane is a podcast about the life and works of Jane Austen, produced by her cousin, Lee Falin. Well...her eight cousin, six times removed.

Rather than explore the "literary themes and ethos of Jane Austen", we explore what you might think of as the behind-the-scenes featurettes, or special bonus features of Austen's books.

"And to all this she must yet add something more substantial, in the improvement of her mind by extensive reading.”

Such a great idea!

"I’m a lifelong Austenite and also fascinated by history so discovering this podcast today was like finding a gold mine. Thanks so much for this unique podcasting approach to Austen’s works. I’m thoroughly enjoying Persuasion so far!”

Beautiful bite-sized brilliance

"I am writing a Jane Austen adaptation and I absolutely love this podcast. So glad Persuasion was the focus for season one because that's the main source material for my piece. Thank you for putting in the time!”
