Ok, I'm just kidding. Episode 19 of First Impressions does not include an MMA-style cage match between two Persuasion movie adaptations, although I do wish we had thought of that before recording it! This episode is just a conventional yet spirited review of two adapatations of Austen's Persuasion: the 1995 Amanda Root/Ciaran Hinds version, and the 2007 ITV adapation starring Sally Hawkins. Enjoy, gentle listeners, and get ready for our next episode, when we will be reading/reviewing the Jane Austen Book Club! (The book, by Karen Joy Fowler!)

The First Impressions podcast is a safe space for us to discuss our love for Jane Austen away from the haters, and perhaps even convert some skeptics in the process.
