None of Nix’s novels have been adapted for other media...yet! There’s been talk for many years about the possibility of films or television based on the Old Kingdom books, but so far nothing has come of it.
Garth doesn't host any podcasts, but has appeared on many. We’ll just include the ones that are Pratchett relevant here.
