Stephen Basdeo’s “Robin Hood” Radio Segment

As most people know, I’ve spent a significant amount of time researching and writing about the legend of Robin Hood.

Having written a Ph.D. thesis on the legend, it was a pleasure to be asked by Jonathan Wright at Pen and Sword books to write a popular history book on the subject, which gradually took shape as Robin Hood: The Life and Legend of an Outlaw (2019).

Most authors promise themselves they’ll never look at reviews of their book, but we can never help maybe sneakily wondering if our ‘average star’ count on Amazon has gone up or whether a feature has been done on your book on the local radio (and let me tell you, Goodreads reviewers are the harshest taskmasters).

But I was lucky enough to have my Robin Hood book featured on an Australian radio station named Australia Out There, which appears to do special features on all things folklore. And I couldn’t be more happier with the review which appeared on this station.

If you have 5 minutes, then why not listen to the review?
