I've had great fun lately recording episodes for two excellent podcasts, which are coming out imminently - do look out for them! I spent some time in conversation with Dave Pickering for 'Getting Better Acquainted' a couple of weeks ago. The podcast is on Soundcloud and you can listen to previous episodes here. It's described as part-interview show, part oral history project and part autobiography through conversation. There's some really cool episodes out already - I recommend listening to the one with Meg-John and Justin, and the one with Sadia Azmat (like episodes of Friends, only more interesting and politically relevant). I find it stimulating and enjoyable; well-paced conversations with interesting people about interesting topics. I'm looking forward to catching up with more of the back catalogue.
Dave's a fantastic host; he really put me at ease and I felt very comfortable talking about all sorts of things with him. As a result I went into a little bit more detail with him about certain aspects of my life which I have not revealed before, so when this podcast comes out it will contain an announcement which I think will be news to most of you. My episode is coming out on 4th October - I'm not going to say any more about it just yet, just that there is something coming which will enable everyone to get to know me a little bit better :)
The second podcast I've appeared on recently is Story etc. It's a relatively new, high-production podcast of which there are six episodes so far, on the topic of fiction. Each episode has a theme - previous themes have been inclusion, myth, secrets, science, interaction, and music - and contains a mixture of original creative writing, and interviews with a number people who have got something to contribute on that topic.
