Podcast! Get your SPL podcast!

December 18, 2009

Get it while it’s hot! Ryan and Robyn took part in a discussion about home as part of the Scottish Storytelling Centre’s Storytelling Festival – Robyn was born and bred in New Zealand and Ryan in Connecticut in the U.S. – and they got together to talk about the poems they’ve carried with them overseas. It was so enthusiastically received that podcast producer Colin decided we should stage a reprisal one afternoon in the library. And we did, and here it is. Also on here, a specially commissioned, fabulous reinterpretation of Clement Clarke Moore’s ‘A Visit From St Nicholas’, by Toby Mottershead and the Black Diamond Express. I don’t know about you, but my ma (and apparently Ryan’s too) used to read this to us every single Christmas eve. What a treat. Of course, Black Diamond Express have conjured up quite a different rendition to the one to which I’m accustomed… A personal sadness to find out that Moore doesn’t look like Santa Claus, as I’d always secretly hoped.
