    Episode 30- Sleeping Beauty

    Episode 30- Sleeping Beauty

    CONTENT WARNING: This piece contains a depiction of and discussions about sexual assault.

    Hello, hello and welcome to Episode 30 of The Embers Collective Podcast.

    Recorded a few weeks before lockdown, this episode we have Lonan Jenkins telling his own take on the Sleeping Beauty story. This story is a dark, twisted tale first performed at our F*cked Up Fairytales events and is certainly not fit for children. This is the version that Disney didn't show you.

    The story is accompanied on music by Tim Karp and the incredible Fiona Fey (whose own music you can find on Spotify).

    The story is followed by a chat between Lonan, Tim and Rixy about male entitlement, how old folk stories are a bit messed up sometimes, and the responsibility stories have in shaping societal narratives.

    Our podcasts are free, but if you would like to make a donation you can do so on the following link and it would be much appreciated: https://ko-fi.com/theemberscollective

    Big love and hope you're all keeping safe and well.

    Episode 29- Iris And Hypnos

    Episode 29- Iris And Hypnos

    Welcome, welcome to Episode 29 of The Embers Collective Podcast.

    This was recorded a few weeks ago, pre-Corona lockdown. It features Sam Rix telling the story of Iris and Hypnos, with music by Tim Karp. The tale is a love story disguised as an adventure story; a deep psychedelic trip to the depths of dreams, and a delicate exposition of grief and loss. Hats off to Tim on the incredible production on this one.

    The tale is followed by Tim doing his rendition of The Night Visiting Song, by Luke Kelly. Tim, Lonan and Rixy then have a chat about the themes of the story: love, loss, losing your mind, grief and beginning again.

    Our podcasts are free, but any donations would be gratefully received- you can pay us the cost of a coffee, through here: https://ko-fi.com/theemberscollective

    Enjoy, and big love.

    Tim, Lonan, Sarah Liisa and Rixy

Wow. Just, wow.

These guys are awesome! Such artful story telling. Perfect listening for bedtime, travelling or just sitting and listening by the fire. Could not recommend Embers enough.
