The Penguin Podcast

Underdogs feat. Malcolm Gladwell, Matthew Frank and Elizabeth Fremantle

This episode of the Penguin Podcast focuses on one of literature’s favourite characters - the underdog. What is our fascination with the downtrodden character? Why do writers enjoy exploring things from their perspective? Is there a part of us that identifies with them? Is it because it makes it all the sweeter when things work out for them?
