I’ve not had a chance to post much recently as I’ve been a bit geographically dispersed — somewhere between the UK, China and Australia. After a couple of weeks, things should settle down again, and I’ll be back to the UK as my main base. But until then, I thought I’d post this long and very generous-spirited interview on my Yijing-based book Sixty-Four Chance Pieces, thanks to Carla Nappi at the wonderful New Books in East Asian Studies podcast. It’s quite long, but there are stories about gods and fox-spirits and the culture hero Fu Xi and all kinds of other things to keep you entertained. So get a cup of tea and have a listen.

If you don’t already subscribe to New Books in East Asian Studies, it is a great podcast, and well worth listening to. It’s my go-to podcast when I’m baking. And thanks to the show I’ve discovered all kinds of wonderful books I would not otherwise have heard about.
Finally, if you want to buy the book, you can find links to various online outlets on my personal website.
