Podcast #147 – Angela V. John

This week we feature Angela V. John, an historian and biographer from Wales who serves as the president of Llafur, the Welsh People’s History Society. Her latest book, War, Journalism, and the Shaping of the Twentieth Century: The Life and Times of Henry W. Nevinson, was published by Bloomsbury in February of this year. It examines the life of a journalist who has been called the “king” of correspondents. John has served as a history professor at the University of Greenwich in London and is currently an honorary professor at Swansea University. She has published a dozen books; her biographical subjects include the Welsh feminist Lady Rhondda and the American-born actor, writer, and suffragette Elizabeth Robins. John was interviewed by fellow biographer and BIO member Lisa Napoli.
