On Nodding Terms

High-res version

Guess what?!

 

My podcast, Auspicious Plastic, has been selected as a finalist in the Frankie “Good Stuff” Awards!

 

I submitted an excerpt from “Episode 10“, featuring a conversation with dedicated diarist and digital publisher, Carrie King. Now it’s in the running for the ‘Writing + Podcast’ category.

 

And – The People’s Choice Award!

 

 

Hence an invitation: if you like what you hear, and you feel like supporting my wee podcast – and recognising the folk who’ve kindly shared their lovely stories with me over the past year – please click on this link to cast your vote for Auspicious Plastic.

 

 

Bobbing around out there on that roiling sea of podcasts, sometimes it can feel as if you’re in the boat alone, rendered invisible by thick fog and heavy swells. So it’s very nice to receive some acknowledgement. And an oar back to shore…

 

I’m really chuffed (and genuinely surprised!) to be selected as one of six finalists in the category.

 

And very grateful to everyone I’ve interviewed for the series so far, Cooperblack for the theme music and Studio Ink for the lovely logo design. And to my late Mum Margaret who inspired it all.

 

And of course, to everyone and anyone who’s listened to the series, and been touched it.

 

Congratulations and good luck to all the other finalists : )

An Auspicious Milestone…

Ten episodes, 11 guests, 12 months and a brand New Year…   As 2018 begins, I’d like to acknowledge all of the kind and wonderful people who have shared their precious objects and personal stories with me on the Auspicious Plastic podcast over the last 12 months.   For me it doesn’t get better than listening to conversations that come straight from the heart.   So on the launch of the 10th episode, I’d like to take this opportunity to gratefully thank the Auspicious Plastic “family”… THANK YOU: Delma and Katherine Calcagno, AU (Episode 01) Anna Brownfield, AU (Episode 02) Michael Pieracci, US (Episode 03) Robyn Overell, AU (Episode 04) Amy Brand, AU (Episode 05) Sarah Pepin, LUX (Episode 06) Danny Walsh, AU (Episode 07)…
