Podcast | Lockdown Reading and Adventure Tales

This episode is all about lockdown reading. In this week’s episode we interview Wales Arts Review contributor Gemma Pearson about her ‘Lockdown Library’ series and what she’s been reading the past couple of months. Continuing on with the story, we discuss Caragh Medlicott’s piece ‘The Solace of the Short Story’ thinking about attention spaces and the short story form. We also discuss Sydney Whiteside’s piece ‘Writing Across Continents: Wales and America’ considering the relationship between geography and selfhood. Finally, we briefly talk about the 100 Page Turners project and the most recent category: ‘Adventure’.
