Created by John Pettigrew, Talking Through My Hat explores bookish businesses and the fantastic people who create them, looking at why business are started, how they keep going and where we can take them in the future.

This week, the guest is Bookswarm’s very own hat-wearer-in-chief, Simon Appleby.

You can listen here on this very website, visit the podcast’s home page or find it in your podcasting platform of choice, including iTunes and Spotify. There are loads of other intriguing guests to listen to as well, including friends of Bookswarm Emma Barnes of Bibliocloud, and Ken Jones of Circular Software.
