Every other Thursday, join Elishia as she presents a new short story that she has produced and directed for the podcast, and then she’ll sit down with the author, taking the opportunity to chat about their piece, from the writing process through to narrating the finished product.
At the end of this mini-season of 10 episodes, hopefully Elishia will have learnt enough from the podcast herself, as she dips her toes in—attempting to write her own short story to narrate in the finale.
To help her along the way, she’ll also have some bonus episodes: interviews with authors who have had their novels released as audiobooks, and with professionals from the industry, who make it all happen!
Episode 10: Elishia Merricks
When Niamh accepted her place at the University of St. Andrews to study medicine, she didn’t think she’d be doing it without Alexis. And now the moment is here, after years of obsessively working towards their shared future, Niamh doubts she can make the next step in life without her best friend pushing her.
Episode 9: M. G. Lockhart
Detective Saul Parminter is a man of many hats: detective (no prizes on that one); artist; author; trilby. And once again, he has managed between portraits to pontificate his, and his assistant Jeffrey's, way into a murder mystery. Of sorts. But most importantly, he has great attention to detil.
Episode 8: P. H. Low
She does not want her half-grown wings. But he might have them, too.
On loneliness, and unexpected kinship, and the stories we tell ourselves about monsters.
