Read Smart Podcast Episode 8: The 2020 Winner

In this episode, podcast host Razia Iqbal is joined by winner Craig Brown. Together they discuss why Craig decided to write One Two Three Four: The Beatles in Time, the incredible impact of the band and what it was like to win the Baillie Gifford Prize.

In One Two Three Four, Craig Brown creates an entirely new form of biography. He captures the serendipities that brought the fab four together and catapulted them to world fame, as well as telling the story of those who came into their orbit, giving a vivid and revealing insight into the world of the swinging 60s.
