The Pemberley Podcast is a Jane Austen podcast discussing film, TV, and book adaptations. Hosted by Jillian Davis and Yolanda Rodriguez.
Jillian and Yolanda started the podcast in 2016 after wanting to discuss their favorite web series, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Upon finishing, they decided to continue covering Jane Austen and Regency adaptations.
They have since covered the web series Emma Approved, PBS’s Sanditon, Recipe For Persuasion by Sonali Dev, Sense and Sensibility by Sonali Dev, the Netflix & Shondaland series Bridgerton, The Emma Project by Sonali Dev, and Mr. Malcolm’s List.
Their goal is to cover an adaptation of each Jane Austen novel. Send suggestions of what Jane Austen adaptation they should cover next!
