A podcast about our favourite things.Read

Welcome to Enthusigasm, something a bit different from Rusty Quill! Every episode is a new, often nerdy topic, from Lord of the Rights or Hannibal to Pets or Space. Guests from across podcasting and new media share their academic expertise, casual knowledge or half-remembered facts on their favourite topics, bringing varied viewpoints, insightful deep dives, laughter and always enthusiasm.

“Helen Gould’s warm presence, engaging questions and utter enthusiasm for every topic makes the show feel like a conversation with a friend, whether you’re familiar with the episodes theme or not.”

The pilot season of Enthusigasm is hosted exclusively on our Patreon, and our subscribers have access to extended cuts of every episode of the public series. New episodes release every Monday and Friday.
