    Episode 100

    Episode 100

    This is the final episode of Sound of Silence.  For the last two and a half years I've had many ideas about how to mark the end of this project.  Maybe I'd get a really famous guest on for the final episode.  Or invite that random bloke on Twitter who said that this was a stupid idea on the day that I started the project.  Or gather 100 people together at the House of St Barnabus for a mass recording of silence.  However, in the end, various changes of mind or unfortunate circumstances meant that none of those ideas came to fruition.   But as I stand here at dawn, on this beach, on the south coast of the UK, it is obvious to me how Sound of Silence should come to an end.   Recorded in Charmouth, Dorset, UK.
