Judy Blume speaks to BBC

American author Judy Blume recently spoke to the British Broadcasting Corporation and that interview wound up in their compilation podcast known as Global Arts and Entertainment. The time marker for the start to the interview is 22:08. Blume spoke about issues ranging from book challenges to the present presidential election contest and motivations behind writing.

The website for the podcast is available at the BBC’s podcast portal. As the BBC World Service has not broadcast any shortwave signals to North America and the Pacific since the summer of 2001, this is a way to access such without a subscription to satellite radio. Some NPR stations carry parts of BBC World Service programming as can be seen here. Online streams are also available.
