Podcast | Victorian Police Dogs, Miscarriage, and the Mabinogi

Podcast | Victorian Police Dogs, Miscarriage, and the Mabinogi

In this week’s episode we interview Hannah McPake, actor and co-director of Gagglebabble, about her upcoming play ‘Rodney and the Shrieking Sisterhood’—part of the Sherman’s Heart of Cardiff series. McPake tells us about her career journey, Victorian Cardiff’s first police dog, and future projects.

We also talk about Esyllt Sear’s piece ‘Is representation of miscarriage getting better?’ which examines representations of miscarriage on screen and an interview with The Mab editors Mark Brown and Eloise Williams. The Mab is an updated retelling of the stories from the Mabinogion for children.

Finally, we’ll be letting you know about events across Wales that you’ll definitely want to check out our What’s on, Wales? Segment.
