    Q&A

    Q&A

    After the live performance of 'Melody's Story Hour' at the London Podcast Festival we had a fun Q&A with the audience about Petrified - how it came about, unusual recording methods and why, for one of us, nothing is scarier than eggs.
    To mark the end of series 3 we wanted to share that Q&A with you. The discussion was moderated by Petrified producer Liam Geraghty who is joined by cast members Michelle McMahon and Margaret McAuliffe as well as writer/director Peter Dunne.

Every episode is brilliant!

I wasn’t sure I was going to like this series but I was so wrong! I tried to limit myself to a couple a day but ended up binging the lot! Great characters really well produced great stories! I always look forward to a new episode.
