The Baillie Gifford Prize Podcast

To mark 21 years of rewarding the best non-fiction writing, The Baillie Gifford Prize has launched a new podcast generously supported by the Blavatnik Family Foundation. This series is hosted by Razia Iqbal, special correspondent at BBC. Each episode celebrates a fantastic backlist of winners and go behind the scenes at the 2019 prize, from the longlist through to the winner announcement. 

The second series of the podcast, Read Smart, aired in February 2020. Each month, host Razia Iqbal will explore the increasingly popular world of non-fiction books. Each episode includes discussions and interviews with prize winning authors, judges and publishing insiders, with guests including prize winner David France (How to Survive a Plague, 2017), publishing director at John Murray Georgina Laycock, 2020 prize judge Simon Ings, 2019 shortlisted author Hannah Fry and many more.
