One of the latest episodes of the Standard Issue Podcast is devoted to Anne Brontë:

Last year marked 200 years since the birth of Anne Brontë and then, well, you know the rest. But the good people at The Brontë Parsonage aren't going to let a global pandemic rob her of a celebration and its exhibition dedicated to Anne is back in business. So Hannah got on the Zoom with events officer Lauren Livesey to chat about why the youngest Brontë is absolutely not "a lesser one", why The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is fiercely feminist, hugely complicated and potentially un-adaptable, and why your age likely affects your feelings about Anne's value. Plus Hannah puts up a spirited defence of Bramwell (sic). She has her reasons.
