Yet another episode that astounds expectations, with all the ease as though it has been done for decades and with fresh ideas that push the envelope ever further. It is simply a testament to the care and personal investment of those involved with the Podcast and the guests/ members that none of it is forced or coming across as a chore.
(Crap drawer! We had/ have boxes of miscellaneous stuff in the 'utility room' so for me it has always been 'utility room' = place-where-everything-semi-useful-is-most-likely-to-be.)
Can I just say that these two guys are wonderful to work with and both have individual skill sets that have taught me so much. Couldn’t do any of this without them and couldn’t be any prouder of what we have all accomplished from the ground up. Not just us as a team, but every single person that has taken part and given their time to tell us who they are as writers through their interviews and their poems.
Yes it is A LOT of work, but what it has rewarded us in terms of growth and highlighting the work of the collective community has been so worth it.
Let me be the first to say if it wasn’t for the podcast and how much I believe in it right now, you wouldn’t have seen my ass again. I’d of been long gone. I believe it’s worth it, and I’m passionate about this being something positive, and I only hope people continue to get behind it to celebrate their works.
As for the crap drawer... utility room... deary me, we’ve got a posh one ‘ere...
