In this week’s podcast episode, we’re thinking about all things musical. We talk to Oli Richards, member of Silent Forum and founder of Goodparley, about the Welsh music scene, the longing to return to gigs and festivals, and the Welsh Music Prize. We also discuss Bethan Hall’s ‘Sarah Nicolls: 12 Years’ and Holly McElroy’s ‘Talking to Sarah Nicolls’, alongside Rufus Mufasa’s ‘Motherhood, Mayhem and Magic’, thinking about music and environment, and the struggle of juggling creative and familial life.
Finally, we explore the 100 Page Turners project’s most recent category: ‘Class and Society’, and introduce our new ‘What’s on, Wales?’ segment, highlighting upcoming and ongoing projects and events in Wales.

Emma Schofield introduces a new series from Wales Arts Review looking at a 100 page turners of Wales, a vast exploration of Welsh fiction that uses the BBC’s recent “Novels That Shaped Our World” as a springboard to argue that Wales’s rich and exciting literary output over the eras has produced a long list of exciting, engaging, and thrilling reads.
