Scorpio Moons

I interview artist and researcher (in ethnobotany) John Gale. Then I respond to the interview with a poem. *BONUS TRACK* wait to the end to hear one of John’s recent songs. Check them out on Instagram @anthropocenestriptease

The Mountain According to Wilf

I try something a bit new here: read a POEM. It concerns a trip I made to Bulgaria to go up to the mountains to take part in an esoteric ritual. Enjoy!

I also try a new theme, which I *think* is by Daniel Inzani. (Is it?)

The father of sickness

A new episode after a long painful break spent not making podcasts; a freaky story all the way from Siberia.

The Lonely Giant

Giants are massive and the stuff they do is very interesting. However, not many people know about their lives. For instance giants can feel epic loneliness. You may have heard that terrible bashing in the mountains, but have you ever thought about what life is actually like for giants? This story will help you get better at imagining it.

The Little Story That Didn’t Want To Be Told

This is a pretty clever and intricate little story about a little story who didn’t want to be told. It stars the famous “Red Gold” Dragon and a lovely, wise, fat, french cat. I once told this story on radio 4 and it went really, really badly. Enjoy!

The King of the Birds

This is wonderful true story from the west of Ireland. It concerns a famous meeting among the birds that took place in Glen Na Hean and on which they attempted to decide who among them would be called king.
