We have two new podcasts up for your listening pleasure –

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.
