An enjoyable podcast guys well done. Made the 6 hour bus trip not so long

If I had a drawer it would be called my shit box magical drawer, for interesting things that have no home

What does 'muckle puckle' mean?
rather neat that
Here we simply say "junk drawer"  


My wife's a linguist and 'word-researcher' - I'll get her on the case as to where 'muckle-puckle' comes from ...   :))   {I just learned it as a kid, where there was only one such drawer}

I’m gonna have an educated guess here... but around here, some double consonants in the middle of words get replaced for “ck”... so bottle for instance becomes bockle. I reckon that was once the muddle-puddle drawer, which would make sense.

Just a guess.

You're right, David.  In English the words were originally 'mickle' (meaning 'many') and 'pickle' (meaning 'mess').
Hence the sayings: "many a little makes a mickle" and "I'm in a pickle"

In Scotland (as I understand it) they got changed to muckle and puckle respectively. Since my paternal grandmother was Scottish, (from Aberdeen), I'm guessing she brought the expression down to Manchester when she married my grandfather - and so it entered the family vocab.  :))

( Finally, an actual reply despite being late! )

Phew!  Episode 5 is amazing and I’m proud to be a part of this, my second time with the Poetcast crew!

There’s a lot of information to process.  And well done, Missy for putting it all together!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I enjoyed hearing you chat about your life experiences and thoughts in general with Eamonn, who also did a loverly job steering the conversation deftly from subject to subject. It was a learning experience when you both discussed about being British...

and crap drawers! I’ve never lived anywhere that didn’t have a junk (Yank version) drawer... varying in content, depending. Like rings of keys to who-knows-where, expired coupons & batteries, a corkscrew, Bic lighters, a flat-sided cheese grater...😳 So that’s where it went!

And then you did double-duty by turning the situation around in the spot-on interview with our prolific Wallyroo92!

My shoutout to Wally - An excellent “star struck” chat, my friend. I’m humbled that you thought of and mentioned me.

And when it came to Daniel reading “Asylum” in his Spotlight on me, my shoutout to him:

My friend, the moment I heard that piece till its conclusion, I fought back the tears, instantly reliving the trauma I’ve never fully recovered from since. Your reading was powerful in all the places intended. Your spoken insight afterwards helped me get a handle. I can never thank you enough for the honor of being in its cathartic glare.

There’s so much else that 5 featured for the listener - from the wonderful original music of Jeff (runaway_mindtrain), and the terrific poetry readings from case28, and buddydog - all of it mesmerizing and rounding off the mix of podcast selections. Looking forward to 6!🤗

DUP is an even better place to create because of THE POETCAST PROJECT.
