MaudCast is the podcast of the L.M. Montgomery Institute. In the MaudCast’s quest to discover cutting edge scholarship about the life and works of Lucy Maud Montgomery, we welcome to the microphone leading academics, emerging scholars, local researchers, and imaginative readers and writers from around the world. Hosted by Dr. Brenton Dickieson, with technical direction from Kristy McKinney, we broadcast from the beautiful campus of the University of Prince Edward Island.


Dr. Kate Scarth is the Chair of L.M. Montgomery Studies at UPEI, where she works closely with the L.M. Montgomery Institute, and is also an Assistant Professor of Applied Communication, Leadership, and Culture. She is particularly interested in the relationship between story and place and works on writers from Jane Austen to Montgomery. Her current projects include yourlmmontgomerystory.com, which was featured in June 2020 on CBC. As always, you can check out links to this great project in the show notes.
