Pratchat is a Discworld and Terry Pratchett book club podcast!
Join writer Elizabeth Flux and comedian Ben McKenzie each month as they discuss one of Terry Pratchett’s books* or short stories with a special guest. There are laughs, Pratchett origin stories, listener questions and more as we do a recap and deep dive on each book. This podcast even has footnotes!
Oh, and the show’s from Australia, so expect a little swearing.

* Not just the Discworld ones!
