The Baillie Gifford Prize Podcast – Episode 1

To celebrate the 21st anniversary of the prize, The Baillie Gifford Prize has launched a new podcast generously supported by the Blavatnik Family Foundation. The new series is hosted by Razia Iqbal, special correspondent at BBC, where she presents BBC World Service’s Newshour and BBC Radio 4’s The World Tonight.

Episode one includes a discussion with prize winners Philippe Sands (East West Street, 2016) and Anna Funder (Stasiland, 2004). With host Razia Iqbal, they discuss their winning books, the relationship between the personal and political, and the forensic nature of telling true stories.
