Listenersinthemist

Today the 50th episode of Listeners in the Mist has been uploaded – an interview with Creative Writing Instructor Keith Whelan. From humble beginnings, the podcast has grown over the last two years into an archive of many interviews with staff, writers, comic artists, poets, book binders, book store owners, editors and more! We’ve even done a Skype interview with an author in NZ.

Thanks to staff, all of the previous guests, and to John Merriman for being the voice of the show.

Podcast Blog Facelift

Posted on November 13, 2013. Filed under: Blogging, Fun Stuff, Web sites | Tags: , |

The ‘Listeners in the Mist’ blog site has had a facelift! John Merriman has very kindly allowed us to use one of his photos for the header image, and the layout of the blog has changed somewhat – it now resonates a little more with the design of ‘Readers in the Mist’ blog. If you have any suggestions for additions to the links/widgets for the page, please let Naomi know. Have a look, see what you think: http://listenersinthemist.podbean.com/. And while you’re at it, have a listen 🙂 We’ve had some wonderful authors on as guests recently.

Episode 28: Springwood local and winner of the October Love2Read Book Review Competition, Patrica Allen, reads her winning entry and talks to John about her reading life.

Click here to listen to the interview online, or search for ‘Listeners in the Mist’ in iTunes to download it for free.

Episode 29: After her wonderful talk and book signing at Springwood Library last week, we were able to gain an interview with Kate Shayler, author of a new book called Burnished, as well as her publicist Fiona Turner. Kate’s latest book is a collection of stories from other ex-Burnside kids.  It’s a fantastic read and a wonderful insight into recent Australian history and into the lives of some amazing people. The book has also just won the 2012 best Non-Fiction (Biography) in the Global e-book awards in the US.
