"Yeah I I mean it it. It's been difficult but. I think one of the rules I've always set myself as I won't. I won't work with any writer. That I don't enjoy writing I'm, not gonNA I'M NOT GONNA? Go. After. Big. Name Rights is that I don't like because I think that might bring an audience. And I think similarly I'm not going to write in styles the I think. Emulate other writers too closely. And you know there's always a temptation I think when? You read a fantastic book. Or you hear a fantastic audio drama safe untested film. I'm you find yourself writing that book. Because you've been it's been so much a part of your I just finished a book today. By British writer David Mitchell and code Utopia Avenue, and it's just perfect for me. It's about rock band from that beginning three to. that. I went while plus ball. But I just got so into that and I found myself thinking we really need to audio drama about iraq-bound from their formation through to. Spoiler and then I. Know just because I've. Just read that doesn't mean I have to go and do that myself I need to be. Sure to myself so. I think that's true of. We take influences and we take ideas and we. went to draw the line when that becomes actually taking too much of another writer or you're taking too much of the plot of something else that you love. And actually you're not going to be able to do that as well because. You know when you do that and So I think it's it's it's it's remaining union being true to yourself in that lie. You the same thing about I'm going to choose writers I like and I can. That I can wet with, but I admire that stuff rather than going after. Big listening because on choosing someone WHO's more famous whatever Yeah I mean, do you do you ever get pitched by more famous writers? Mike Oh Produce my work and things like that and saying, no, well, I I mean I haven't really. Seen Much I. Starting, to get a reputation in the poetry world so that people are preaching me. and. As I referenced area that that contact with them, failed the purchase folksinger she she approached me so it's quite fostering when people who was on the phone are looking up at my CD shelf and I can see three of CDs just sitting there. This is amazing. But. Yeah I mean I'm not getting. Big Name Writers Knocking Down My. Door. On you but but there are people. An increasingly agents as well. Writers, agents coming to me and saying, have you ever considered doing a podcast with this writer? And Sometimes. I've heard from some sometimes I haven't. But you know. I can only do as much as I can do ready. And so I picked the ones to with really. Because it's your time that in your resources and you know you're Isic and everything that you're putting into it. So that makes sense makes that's All. Right. So as we close this episode, always have questions that I love to ask the guest What is your definition of success? I rarely just. Making. Stuff that I enjoy I guess following on from that I want people to be listening to it. It's not good making something he really like him and saying that three people listened and offer them stopped halfway through. Off of three people. podcasters. podcasting days. One one eye on the digital recording studio in one eye on the list. So. So yeah, I mean it's got it's got to be. Listening numbers, I think but a great success for me was. Providing some content for BBC radio not what an honor that was when they approached me and said, could we use? One of your opinions. On a on a BBC radio show. yes. Please that will be good. So so little things like I, got nominated to appear didn't happen because of Covid but in Cody UK International Radio Drama Festival, and one of our pieces was. Selected to represent the that. So you know that that sort of feels like recognition whether you Kohnic success. Oh, now I don't know. I mean it's the next year. It's it's you know after just from being a podcast as well. All those episodes where you feel like nobody's listening to nobody's listening and then finally when people start writing back and people start showing you love and. Everything, and then you know it's all worth it all those hours of producing. Inland baby come worth it. So that makes sense that would be successful. Now, last question, what is your best advice to the young writer or musician? Maybe yourself top one. Out there. Who is just struggling right now, what is your best advice to them? I would say. Try something try something different. So this this is what from me in both music and and writing actually. So I'm one of the one of the great exercises in creative writing. In the course, I mentioned London was the am stream of consciousness thing. So all tennis yourself into James Joyce. And the role was I'm going to I've got a watch I'm going to click stop watch and you write for two minutes and your pen does not leave the paper you just keep writing for two minutes and see what you come up with at the end of it a nice such freeing exercise. And I think with. I'd advocate that for all writers. Pick a genre that you don't normally work in. So if you would never touch Sifi with a barge pole. Having some Sifi. Old is things go out of your comfort zone and the same with music really picker PICA's young I. I tried. I tried to learn some. Some funk guitar, which so you know paige white boy. I am not a guitarist that I tried to learn a few. Now roaches licks and boy does that improve your technique? And so. That that's that's something I would say just do something that you've not done before that. You would never dream of doing and just see what it's like put yourself in in that position outside of your comfort zone. and. I do that with my dance all the time. I'll go take a different class go do something different physically challenging and then I'm actually do take more risk later on with. Things too you know. That's also what it is. It's the risks. involved. Well. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you for all that you've shared. Also like I can say, thank you for all the all the help you've given me as a writer and and exploring this new world of audio drama and all the fun at its end. So I. Really. I really yeah. I really appreciate it and it's been such a learning experience and actually really found a lot of things that I love about and it's producing creating something new I definitely feel like back in my world again I'm like Oh my God why are not why are more creative is not doing this is so much fun. So I wanted to say creative minds you can listen to the alternative stories and fake reality podcast on apple in all major platforms where you can listen to podcasts I recommend you listen to the.

"Where I feel as a monologue or even audio drama like the music bills right and so the story has to build in the same way and. I feel like many things I read many things I videos, and even online courses and things just and very flat and Mike. How are we? How can we fix this and how or is missing or is this the craft? Getting I I don't know like I just see everywhere. Mean I. It's difficult. Isn't it? Because not every story has a has a conclusion that is. Wow. I didn't see that coming know twist in ending or. Massive, revelation at the end. Irony. O'hare. Allies allies on like that but that doesn't mean that they're not worth telling. Characters same logs not knowing what's coming next in a in a life all that piece of narrative and It's got to be an anything that has a bit of uncertainty and. Obviously in in all world, we think with sequel. On a on a bit of a I wonder what happened next then you have that possibility if you. Mile bike full of people saying I love not one. You go back to the Russian site. You know what people want to know more about this character. Could you write me a little bit more? You know we're a bit like movie directors and producers in that I've. Got An iphone what might come next if it's if that formula works don't kill the main character at the end. Exactly unless it's a trilogy maybe. It's having the sequel. Is there a point where you've had to say no, this is it for the character or do you then foresee idea I mean when you get those types of requests for sequels Never, I've never had to. Of Nevada A. Coward to work. So I mean I think. Sometimes, I've said I think. That piece just needs to stand on his own. And some of that may be down to. Not, as many people and listen to all. PODCAST. As we got lots and lots of statistics, we can say who who listens where they listen how many times they listen i. How long they listen for and that's that's a really crucial one actually. So we can actually go and say Kay. Fifty percent of our audience. Gone before the end of this one. So. There was something about it. They didn't like and. I'm you use that to to learn lessons I mean we're not. We're not commercial. In the you know if people are switching off, we we we won't do anything that ever again because you know it sounds very high-minded. Say this but we're in it for the art. So. Y-. But there is a point where you know if if you're making something that people aren't liking than, what's the point of making it really. So you make decisions based on all sorts of things but I think if it came down to it was something I. Really loved and I thought that could be more of it. But the listeners maybe didn't need want once I show I might give it another episode to. See if maybe we can. Get some of those listeners to see what I'm saying. See why I'm loving it. So yeah. But it's a conundrum as you as you know. I definitely is there anything that any project that you had that you just loved that you had to like let go of or just didn't work and audio drama or anything like that? This earth. Does a couple of I've started writing and. I've just. ICON. Writers we saw we set ourselves problems. Don't we? This is this is the the odds of being a writer. It's it's a bit like being who does crosswords Sudoku, whatever you you set yourselves problems with the character. How do you get your character from points I, which is generally a not so great points. And two point beware. you know they've come could all the problems along the way and there there's a happy ending not. And you need solve those problems along the way and there's been times I've been writing something I just calm solve these problems in this format. And you just sort of graciously. Shuffle the papers off the desk pretend it never happened and go and something else. And sometimes. With more experience, you come back to those things and they watch could solve that S-. And the fail like all all the feelings gone and you move on something else and I guess that's no different really from. How many how many started an unfinished short stories too you have poems that. Kind of Peter out after the fifth line. And I guess we're all we're all experimenting what we really. Yeah I, mean all of us have half empty files in our you know our computer scrivner review we right you know. I know I do and cut pages and all those lines we think are brilliant and they're just sitting there on. Know what is what is it that you love to write the most I would say I mean we know audio drama but is there any certain type of story that you like or certain types of genre or type of? writing that you like the most. It's hard to do poetry short story and. You know I feel like it's hard to be good at a lot of things. Yeah. Yeah. I mean on an I pretend to be a public by any means. Not, the best short story writer. I mean I kind of fail the. Audio drama is is where I'm happiest. I think that the breakthrough radio I think for me was Sarah and we did a a piece called Anglia which was this. Four. Part climate change piece really and and I really felt that. You know I'd I'd I'd actually moved on that they felt more. grown-up. I liked the characters more. I felt the actors were responding to it better than anything else we we've done and. So I started to learn from that. I was good ass and what I wasn't so good. So. I think audio dramas where I'm happy happiest in terms of John Laura I'm. I don't know really I mean I've done Sifi. That that I, I, like the folklore side of things a lot of those folklore pieces of been. Either written by all written in collaboration with the writers I like to kind of explore. Relationships between people and that that were talking about earlier the lake our was Was An example of that and I like dysfunctional families. Massive. Fun Of from Franson. Certain. On boy can he write a dysfunctional family? Unser so. Some some of that place where and the lake. How came from was somewhat friends and Scott I. Think. but you know I also, it's really. we've Cintas done with done a bit of science fiction lately which. I know is it is it? Is. I think overwhelmingly represented in audio drama podcasting actually there are so many scifi audio dramas. and. I feel you could sort of get lost amongst all of them. But that said I think you can say things in sci-fi there are very very relevant to our world today. And and. Just. Of The soundscape she can create are. zaps and zips and lasers. Spaceships taking off his fantastic. Now because all the world building that's what I admire. SCIFI. Writers and how they do it like all the world building that they have to do I. Feel like you've just like you said earlier, you've cut it down so much with just the. Jackson simplifying. Yeah. No, but I I. Love like the dysfunctional family too I. Mean family's very big in a lot of my culture like in a Latimer Latina cooperating. So it's a huge trope that we see and of course, like there's just no shortage of problems for dysfunctional families. Friend Yeah. Jonathan brands and do. All right. You know on any journey that's. You're developing art and producing it and sending it out there. It's really hard to stay I feel for any artist to stay artistically true to their values. What does that been like for free you? How have you been able to stay true to what you really envision for your?.

"I think that were well because the performances we got from the actors in that in that particular audio drama, which is called the bomb. An, hopefully, fingers crossed we're going to be doing more with them emily with those same characters very soon I'm. So well, and we've done a bit that way signed. With another Rights Code Dan Caitlyn Felix. In a piece called the same trees. And she'd helped to select an actors through the casting prices. Well, so I think I mean to cut the show. I, think involving the writer as much as possible is a an enriching an interesting process for them because you don't get to do that if you're if you're just writing novels. But Bay I think for the actors it's it's just brilliant to be able to get connection directly to the. To the writer rather than playing Chinese whispers with me in the way the director. So yeah. That's that's. A Formula I think we gotta do much more of. Yeah and I think it's great to give a lot of that creative power to the writer if they choose if they feel like they want that control I s or if they feel like they are. Bare aware enough of the character to do it when I worked with my friend is a director when we were doing the last magician I let her kind of takeover just because I trusted her very well, and she did a great job but there were so many things. I didn't think about that. We need it and I was like Oh my God I'm so glad. That, she helped me with this because you're not thinking about like interacting with each other and then plus I'm sure you're doing this. All remote is well like you're not in a studio with people working together and feeding off or short that's harder to write. It is I. I that's one of the reasons actually why Didn't affect us at all because. We always recorded not way. A know that you know it closed closed down maybe movie lots and TV studios. Because of the social distancing, it also closed down Radio Studios. So the way in which the BBC made, radio drama that. That show that I was referring to. Earlier that really long running one and that's gone to a really different format of of monologues so character will speak for five or six minutes. and then another character speak and what they did was just shit microphones, tones of their actors and just say re this. Now, I I think that's a real cop out because you know we always did dialogue in not separated a synchronous way. You just need to. Direct it well, enough I think you've got A. Festival, you get your act has to record three or four different versions of every line. If you've got one character that talks mostly throw seen, you might get carrot to record their lines first then send that out to the other actors. So they record they act alongside that. There's lots of tricks of doing it. But at the end of the day every on separate it and someone at the end of it I, me has to put that Jigsaw together and it can be time consuming. I mean literally, administrative audio can take an hour. To piece together. Because not only are you cutting and pasting Each line speech, you'll selecting that line of speech from four takes. For each of the characters in that. That peso. Labor of Love Christina? It's the timing I was sitting here at my daughter's in studying sound design. So I was sitting here and she was doing one of my my audio dramas and We're just like Joe just one more second just we were just so like careful with it it was not easy and I know I probably almost brought her to tears with me being so picky. the monologue I want to touch on this because I don't know like the monologue is such an important piece. And we don't. We aren't used to writing it not screenwriters unless you're a playwright and breaking the fourth wall like. You know novels. We don't really write it. So the writing and crafting a great monologue. What are your thoughts on that? Yeah I mean I mean we have we do have some examples. From from way back so Pick a Soliloquy from Shakespeare Hamlets to not today as. Alternate iconic. And? Dot some. When I when I write a a monologue I I think. It's GonNa have beginning a middle and an end. You WanNA start it with A. Fairly Whitey statement. And you WanNa end it with something that's memorable. Robin it just sort of petering out nothing. apologetically and and. So I think. You you've got to try and. A bit like A. Fun Playing Guitar I wanted to try and find a hook the that is going to. riff that's going to attract them the listeners I think that's true of of monologues as well. I'm not sure there are hard and fast rules other than other than those. Really. It needs to be as long as it needs to be. We don't want to go on for. Five or six pages of script. When I when I when we put out the fiction? That that model Fulmer as opposed to audio drama, which is dialogue my sleigh. I always site to writers. In needs to be shorter. So if you're writing if you're writing it with multiple voices, the listener will stick without for longer. But if it's just for one voice, you've got to be a bit pithier in a more succinct and tighter, and so we'll go through and we'll say do we need dot sentence and we'll? Get rid of it be be ruthless as as you edit through it. And Sometimes Five or six minute pace for podcastone is all you need? In. Some of the some of the really short pieces we've done have been for me more memorable than than than some of the longer ones actually they they stick with our with our listeners a longer. Because we follow a single character through a journey of that. In. mind. So yeah, I'm not sure there are rules in sure I'm. To. Define what the rules are, but there's some of the ones that are. Not just really rules. It's just like making it like ways to just make it good because comedians do monologues I mean look at the late night talk show host do them every night and you know they start they have the joke setup, right? Like. They have everything set up on what I notice a lot. Especially see this a lot in the influence our world is that. people wrap things in very anti climactic.

"An urban area with not very much to play with maybe not much outside space shuttle. Wants to try and bring a bit of the countryside into. Into, you know those those areas so that you could kind of in your mind despite the confines of it but. A podcast we did by. Sarah. Colonna and she'd witnessing call green man and it was a British folklore idea of the green man who? owns all of the woodland's and forests in Britain. This huge green figure a bit like agreed in the Harry Potter stories with their Green Beard and and she'd written this as a kind of a love poem to her her husband. But it just described as walk through a forest and it was sell evocative and we put that out and literally just piling on its own thing with with a bit of music. So that really really short podcast but we had so much reaction to it from people saying. I mean a five meter by four meter space. And I haven't seen a tree for. Four weeks and and this is just beautiful and I've listened to over and over again and. I thought we we're onto something here and Let's try and try and really take. Take our listeners out of out there. The confines and I give them something that reminds of what they used to be able to do. So. Yeah. That was that was that was the mission I guess through three lockdown. Ice Staying focused on that was really where he needed to grow and getting I think only content creators entrepreneurs podcasters are get excited when they get emails So yeah. When when they're saying we love it or they know they give you feedback and we're praise whatever it may be, and then also you feature a lot of female voices which I, definitely want to know. Is it just the submissions you're getting like what makes you choose which artists you're gonNA work with and which ones and how you're gonNA change the story. Of interest between. It's become a bit of a self fulfilling prophecy really. A lot of our listeners are female and I I don't know whether that's because. A lot of the stories featured. Female characters female female actors. An increasingly now female writers I think when we started. The podcast I think the idea was that we didn't want to marginalize anyone and I didn't want it to be this kind of male dominated. PODCAST, and even the title of it alternatives stories we wanted to tell stories. About characters that were not the main character. In a piece of folklore mythology. So our early series is all about some. Classical mythology mythology Greek and Roman mythology, and we would take a standpoint from a character who was an incidental character, but we found had an interesting story. And a lot of them turned out to be female characters, and so. And as we did that, we we started to work with a lot of. Actresses, and a lot of our listeners became women empathizing with with those characters I'm. And I think also what? We found it much more much easier to recruit the quality of female actor. That we needed the mailbox I'd really done I why that is. And I. Think we've redress that balance a bit more recently but. Star I. Think we ought certainly in terms of our submissions, a lot of them are from female writers and maybe there are more female writers out there I don't know but. It's something that You know I'm I mean no way apologetic or? Full of I, find it. In. Giving a voice to two women, writers and empowering them, and that's that's that's how I say it really. So when you work with the Writers I know when we worked together I was just like, okay I'm sending you audio file. Here you go. I hope Org but I know what the story it's very different because like you said, we mentioned earlier it has to fit. So how do you balance like the creative control with the artist and writer and then also the production side of it because Producing something it's just like a whole different beast and you have a team of people probably that you're working with the. Director. Know the sound year doing the sound design. It's such a big effort. How do you like? Tell us what that process is lake in one one of the things we've we've. Formula, that we've kind of stuck on recently is. Involving the writer as much as possible through the whole process. I, need to talk to you, Christina because I think we need to do with we need to do with the the. Mexican folklore tons and tons of that if you. Will we'll we'll talk about some other time. Music. So, we really good example is a piece we did. Last week actually with a radical emily ink pen, which is just the perfect name for a writer. I know I. Thought, that was her pen name that's her real name, a room. With. A little tiny village on Nitsa Newbury. Ads In in the south of England called ink pen. And Obviously, I guess I. Family Name Comes from from that somehow. But it is just the perfect name for a writer. and. So we involved all the way through she she writes science fiction and She's she's got a series of novels on the go. Just. Looking for an agent and publisher at the moment but she writes her a Prequel to this novel series set I think ten years before the action in novels. And I'm so festival she wrote they write the script and today. Let's. have to correct anything in now it's just just perfect and so you know this this was this was great because you may not having to do too much. She then. Helped me do the casting? So describe the characters I said okay. Maybe this actor would want for that one and this actor for that one, and so together we listen to they build a sham rails, the actors. Then when we do not she created. Little videos for each of the characters I'm explaining to the actor what that character was like and what their motivations were and so suddenly she was becoming the director. And I was sitting. you carry on Mississippi fantastic. And I think the only points at which she. Handed over the reins to me within the then the mixing of of the of the audio that came in and helped me listen through today as well and What I think we got there was that real connection between the writer. said the source material and the actors so they knew exactly what was expected And straight from the Horse's mouth as it were from from the from the writer. and..

"That often technically, really good. But when the band say, okay, let's jammed listen I'm Mina. They tend to be lost because they're so used to following sheet music whereas those of us who've learned by air. And practiced I suppose. Can just get into the into the groove and Jan things and so the apply with at the moment we we Jan for. We'll get an idea. We're jam it for ten minutes, record it, and sometimes a song comes from that. I'm an and I I like to think kind of the same in the way that writing happens and most of the stuff we've done lately as either been collaborative. Or ideas several ideas I kinda mashed together into one. It's a bit like the by rhapsody has got three or four different parts to me. They could have could have had three sons out of that, but they made it into one and so a lot of the thought of the dramas we think. are a bit like that. Really. Yeah. I. Definitely. Feel that like the But they're kind of they are two different things in one but they're kind of strung together very well I guess they transition very well the lake isle I guess because it's you know it's all through voicemails. And then you know the fight with the sisters is what I was getting at the end. So it did seem like two different. It felt like three different series in what episode three different series. But like it was just like the one three, you know in one episode. Yeah I think what? What, what we wanted to get across that one? I think. Some of that was about lockdown really that some we an. In the story lockdown wasn't wasn't mentioned at all. It was a kind of covert free world I guess. But I, think during lockdown. So much of a communication has not been face to face in in the. Human. The Human Realm I guess we've we've talked to people in telephones. We've emailed. We've had zoom conversations like this. World Really. Shares, before the phone notch but some. An. But some of the we lose some of the human touch. That ability to emp anthem empathize I think. In in that type of communication and it's very easy for people go missing and that's what we tried to put across in in that story I and so it's almost a when one of the sisters went missing. It was almost a shock to the other one that she then had to rather than just send emails or leave voicemails. She actually got a jump on a train and go somewhere and try and track down her sister. So. Yeah. But the I think the other thing that there were three very different narratives. From three characters. The two sisters in the father all. At their own agendas. All of him when understanding what the others were failing and they didn't have the tools to. To really dive into either. The ability to speak to each other all they ability to. Getting inside each other's heads, and so they drifted further further and further apart even as they were trying to come place together. So that was. That was what we were trying to get across in that story whether we did or not I'm not. I'm not sure but. I just remember the and really feeling feeling it when they I'm not going to spoil it but I do remember just the shock at the end like the and. The the exchange between the two characters like that really stuck in my head afterward how far apart but it was built. It was it was building. You can definitely feel the tension building throughout the because I have a sister that's strange for me and I was just got like even at the end does I I should probably call my sister. What I was I was hoping. That people think you know don't don't. Don't take for granted. Don't take your your siblings or your parents or whatever for granted and. Don't. Let it drift so far. That's it's irrevocable. which it became in in that one sadly, no plot spoilers. So. Speaking I know that piece might have been influenced by covert even if it didn't directly talk about Kobe which a lot of pieces are directly talking about coca. but how did this pandemic? I mean chain it changed a lot for not just your podcast, but it seemed like it had a big effect on your life. So how did things change for for you over the past months? Well it. became very busy and as as you know and. I. Was doing kind of various sort of day job things. Around supporting healthcare workers. Without problems. So that was that was one think but in terms of. The world of podcasting it just it just lapped forward because we suddenly had a a captive audience and. Are Listening figures just went through the roof. During. During that period and And I. Felt we needed to try and make sure that we could keep those listeners. Beyond the end of this, this pandemic. So I think that's the point at which started to. Enlist the writers to. To help us right and content for the for the show and we we went to to podcasts a week. People were people sending emails saying how much they were enjoying the podcast and how it was helping them through. and. Some really ready touching emails and we thought let's try and give people a bit more at this difficult time. Trying to distract for star you know without without being flipping into that it. Now, it's an escape pod casting escape for people. And And so yeah, we start a lot more. Poetry and and I think that's some of the sort of folklore stuff that I've found. Talked about. I think a lot of the poetry was about the natural world and I always imagine myself I'm lucky because I don't live in the middle of a big city I, live in a small town in the countryside. So I can walk for two minutes and beer out in fields and trees and. Sort of thing but I was imagining myself an you know maybe more like your situation Christine away your in..

"Looks at the mall route. See. Folksy. Side of music. And the piece of music in that Pace so-called undeterred. is by by coach show of hands who are Devon based ban? Denison. You look at a map of the UK. There's. This is this is I'm not geographer the bay that sticks out in the bottom left hand corner has cornwall and Devon two counties there on this peninsula almost, and they're almost like an Ireland almost that. Surrounded by sale all my stunned I'm what comes after those counties is really interesting to lots and lots of folklore. Mythology and really amazing folk music can show of hands of one of those bands and that that song in particular raid influenced. Nicholas John. And and you kind of preempting something can be doing in the autumn. The full we we having a right to prompt. Simply Stories inspired by songs. So a writer picks their favourite solar song that means something to them and right say piece of audio fiction about that about that somewhere inspired by that song, and that can be literally taking the characters from the Selma fits. Tells the story or it could be nothing to do with the song just things that are suggested by the music. So I'm really looking forward saying what people come up with. I think you're right now the one of the challenges is. If you if you've got a some that someone's influence influenced by. You can't necessarily used that for copyright reasons. Now, Luckily Nicholas John Polson pulled some strings and was friends with Steve Knightley from chef Hans who said Yeah of course, you can use it good advertising for us, but if we're looking at a balanced. The fighters. Whatever? Yen One of my first novel that I wrote my adult life like in my late twenties early thirties was influenced by she talks angels by the Black Crowes like that song as very important. Yeah. That's it was very touching for me and I wanted to call it. She talks to angels but I was like, no, it's too obvious. It hurts to in the songs like what twenty thirty years old why I now but it was a was a big influence for me but we couldn't use it and I feel like a lot of writers do have certain leagues or certain lines from the song we want to reference them and we want but we wanNA build on them but we find a way to just focus on the story which is what we should be doing instead I'm but it I. Think I think. What one of the things we've been doing lately we've we've got ourselves a bit of a reputation. In a lot of our stories and this has been by accident really rather than. By design. Had that kind of folklore mythology. Edge to them, and that's attracted a number of kind of folk musicians and so. On the on the addition that you you're on before this got John spiers there who is a quiet eminent fight musician hair in The UK was part of a folk band called Bella had were the craziest thirteen piece horn section, and we're like a big band fight by but playing jason rails an an an gigs were completely I mean sweat drenched everyone dumped sing mad. A it'll retreat the pub afterwards and people would go along with our instruments and join these amazing jams. So John. Did DISA- music forest. We commissioned him to do some music for a drama called selke based on Scottish folklore. And we're also working with a An amazing musician called fe healed his and he's got an album coming out in in September. I'm where working with high on an audio drama inspired by a couple of songs from the album, and we're going to use a bit of how music. In in that podcast. And we've got one coming out tomorrow. With a another fight musician Code Catherine, pretty a UP, in Birmingham. And she's. She's actually appearing as a as a writer and. Actress. And she's let us on one of her songs as well. So there's a there's a connection that's kind if completely. Not planned. As, kind of gone got into really nice direction that we we are able to use some music and it takes some of the. Some of the pressure off me. These faces. Oh. I'm sure you know what you're doing I mean the best the best things I feel like the best doors that kind of open are the things that kind of happened by accident or unexpected right it's just you never know who's who's watching and who's listening so So tell us like over a year this past year because I remember I remember when you first started one of my good friends, she was a poet she was featured on your cast, and that's how I am bound you and you've grown within a year rapidly. So and by accident. As. As you said I mean you're you're putting two of your passions together music and writing and both self taught by the way I mean very impressive as well. Do you think the self taught journey kind of opened up a little bit more doors more so than having like such rigid writing classes or you know structured music theory or things like that? I mean I I. Think I mean certainly on the right thing I did have some A few weeks of creative writing Jewish. Writing Scott spent time so I did I did a a coastal. Quarter year. I was living in London I did a kind of evening San Wave at-bat College, which is. Associate one of the universities in London. I'm which was fun radio. Did it as a hobby? Didn't expect to be earning a living as a writer by any means. and. As far as the music is concerned, completely salvator mainly a guitarist. Bass. Mandolin and even Banjo. But so most most things with strings that you can pluck. But some really for the for the soundtracks I've taught myself. Synthesizer because. If so much atmosphere with. With synthesizers. kind of anathema ready to propositions. Ways I'm kind of cheating but. I, I do mix them with with real instruments in there to comes as well. But there are a lot of a lot of sense there. Yeah in terms of I think it means that. If I don't know what the rules are. I don't know that I'm breaking them. If that makes sense and I think I think quite often. A, really good example is when I when I play music with people that are classically trained. That often technically, really good.

"Yeah, and I to your point audio visual and you don't have and the fact that we let the readers do all of those things for us and really imagine everything for us. I always stay away from faces when I'm putting together artwork or anything for my stuff as well and I got to say that was one of the biggest things I would listen to yours and then I, listened to mine and I was like, Oh, my God I have to cut back on the descriptions and improve the narrative voice like I immediately like was like Oh my God that was a huge mistake. and. What was what were some other things that you learned that were just like Oh my God. Mistake moments. that you got sweet or email well, I think the So so another another part of my background is the I'm a musician. And I resolved. Fairly early on that I was going to try and do all of the music. Full alternative stories and compose compose all the music yourself impose and perform. Now this, this may not panned out in that way I hadn't realized quite a rod for my own back I was making. That decision to have to compose something new. Every we can get twice a week was was quite quite a task. But. But lots of lots of things about music the alert where you've got to think about the frequencies of the music and there is a certain middling frequency and instruments like guitar and all the Middle Range of a synthesizer piano that is almost in exactly the same. Sonic spices as human voice. And so. You you'll music can be a relatively low level, but completely cut across your your characters. So you've got to try and avoid that. So a lot of my music will be Kinda low and run badly. Ominous minor chords that sort of thing to suggest I not so great situation. Or typically and kind of a the`real with a lot of the magical and functional stuff we do so so music I think is critical in it and just like in film and TV where it sets a mood. So you in an ideal world, I would have more than one piece of music drama. As. The mood evolves during the during the drama and that's why I made my own back in terms of. If I if I need that music and and I said, I'm going to I've got. Kentucky's IT. So, some of it may possibly reappear. I made all. I think the other thing? On a similar in a similar vein really is. That you can have the two best actors or actresses for your piece but if their voices are really similar, your listeners aren't going to be able to tell them apart. So there are there are times when I've had to go for a not so good actor for a role where I really wanted to cast this guy but. His voice was too similar to someone else's. So all of those things are are tricks that listeners pickup for you. I couldn't tell the difference between Tom Joe. Sorry that was my fault. So you know all those things you you you learn. You're casting. Very. hoster has taken into account. So, good funk. WHENVER casting Before like working entertainment, we would always look at visually the person like do they meet all the characteristics and things like that, and of course, can they play a role but you never really thought too much about their their voice right and then actors do shift their voices a little bit. I feel especially, voiceover actors They're really good at that like shifting the character. Telling their voice, I feel which is also an amazing you act to right you're in a lot of your stories. This is a really reluctant thing. I've done times when. An actor I the hasn't come through all her. I'll just couldn't find the right voice. Full the for the character that I or another writer at created. So. Yes I have I mean I'm very I'll have a very limited range and. My Scottish accent. Is. Probably the only the only one I've ever I've ever used and that's that's me kind of acting riddick. So that said, I mean I mean one that comes out Very, soon, actually But I just recorded a few lines attempted to even credit myself. Maybe. I showed a modest with with plenty of reason to be modest about my acting. Well I. If you for people who think it's easy to just really jump on the Mike and say a few lines truly not and that's what I've come to learn to I've when the pandemic hit now, one of the things that going back to the music when the things that I really like is that the sound is really so well put together it changes at the right moment it. Definitely. It definitely sometimes, you don't even like really notice the music because it's just so subtle and it's in the right places and also you used the mainstream songs, some of your pieces as well like you used to. I heard a a song in the most recent episode and I gotTa say do song lyrics just kind of spar the story like of kind of attributes some of our stories to song lyrics I know I do but we don't use them as writers because we Kinda can't. So, how does song lyrics and how to song writing or like how does that influence your stories and the stories you choose maybe two In particular example. So the the guy that wrote that that piece is a music journalist. Guy Could Nicholas John and he? Edit some right. Sam What he's written for lots of Music Magazines magazine in the UK Yet.

Of England just north of London and yes I'm breaking my own rule today and I am featuring a male guest only because I want to shine the light on someone who features women, writers, actors, poets on his his podcast I've been a contributor on his show and I can honestly say that his work and sound design and storytelling is a masterpiece and not just story and sound, but it's really all the moving pieces together and I wouldn't bring you someone. I would bring me someone where sharing because he's also inspired me in these rough times in the pandemic to create audio drama. My last magician series would not exist without him and the only way I was able to produce it because I spy on him. But he's also been very encouraging and supportive. Welcome Chris Gregory. Thank you. I was looking around see who you were talking about. Introduction. Thank you, say. Now, thank you. Honestly I is by on your work all the time especially when you do the help episodes on how to produce around design and mixing stories and I'm always thankful that you get my nineties references. I always appreciate that as well. People of a certain age should I? To stick together. Hey I I. Love it when I always love good throwback for sure. Now, audio drama is just really taking off and I suspect at even my screenwriting friends and actor friends in L. A. Are Starting to jump on this bandwagon to are there. It's just such an entirely different craft and you were thinking about this long before the out right? Like you had been already involved in this year. So, tell us some of the things that make audio drama different because you've studied screenwriting as well. Fright. What makes audio drama little different? I think well, first of all audio drummers is a great. Kind of sampit if you are aspiring to be a playwright writing for the stage and all a writing. screenwriting so But really as as as as you say, it's an art form. On its own now now here in the UK we have this long tradition. Of Audio drama the I. Think the longest running audio drama in the world is is on the BBC it's I think what the arches and it follows. Several generations attends of a of a farming family. In a village. In Worcestershire. And it shouldn't work but it but it does and I think what it does is appeals to city folk because they get to imagine being in this lovely village in the English countryside. And there's a really famous anecdotes about this because it became very successful. In the kind of late sixties I guess and they made the mistake and they thought they were GonNa make a lot of money. They put it on the telly on the TV. and. It absolutely bombed. And The most famous quote was When when have listeners of the audio drama had watched it on the TV. Pitches aren't as good. And I think that really sums up what audio dramas about because you don't have to do. I'm you have to do some? Audio Effects, but you don't have to do massive affects like you'd find in a Spielberg movie or anything like that because your listeners are doing the work for you. In the heads and this is why I think when when a lot of audio drama. podcasters. Create Merch with author of the characters. Listen say I. Didn't imagine she that. He he's know that 'til. But there's been no clues at that. You've you've made that that. Lincoln, your own head, and you use your imagination to to pitcher those characters. So I think I'm in making audio drama. What we have to do is to try and. Put. Those pictures into people's heads that we we don't have the tools. I'm so when you right when you're doing screenwriting the the golden rule is show don't tell. doesn't work in audio drama. It's all about telling See you learn these tricks because it can't sound fake? It can't sound I'm walking down the street now. Oh, I can see a building. I mean, we don't talk like that. So we have to do it through interactions. So a character will say, where are you? What are you going and then you can answer that sounds natural. What can you say at the moment? I can see a building and the birds in the sky. And that's the way you have to do it but you've got to learn the hard way. That's a craft that. You learned from experience and you'll have lots and lots of emails and tweets saying. You. Lost me completely that I didn't. I didn't have a clue what was going on when you when you first start out and gradually and you learn from those things what works and what doesn't work And so we like to work with a lot of different writers and so one of the most common conversations I have in in all my life really is, is that conversation about what's going to look as drama and and what isn't because it's not a natural skill? To adapt from the screen writing or even short story writing. It a short story you can. You can have two pages of descriptive narrative. About to see that your character and say. All of which isn't going to work in audio drama. You've got to do that through. Through some dialogue. Between your character can be in their head, you can use an eraser. Type figure but but the best audio drama is all about conversation and the final thing I'll say this very long answer. I'll start. So mean to go is the listening to compensation is is absolutely critical listening to the way that people talk. Listening to the way that sound Happens in different spices. Sounds. Very different outdoors to how is indoors. It's very different in a forest to how it is on a beach. You gotTa Kinda, listen to those things and. You know try and learn and be able to recreate those things in in audio drama..

"Randy Bennett is gonna join us head coach Saint Mary's. Good for into the show at about six fifteen. They're eleven and seven they're up to a two one start in conference loss to USF on the road and beat BYU eighty sixty six and LMU seventy one sixty sell parts of both those games. So we'll get into the conversation. See how he's thinking so far and all that other stuff things we've set up today. We'll do more of this at seven o'clock dubs countdown to tip off is we ready for the pelicans over at oracle arena tonight. And the last night's game was unbelievable. Not unbelievable. Actually, very predictable to be honest, one forty two one eleven they would blow out the nuggets in the fashion that they did when they are focused especially on the road. They get that us against the world kind of in Tallahassee. But the first quarter historic fifty one points ten three pointers. Steph. Kaby an Klay were crazy. They are not often in sync like that together, they were credible. Durant? Led the way on seven for seven Murray was really good for Denver as well. But one of those games that is the reason why where fans really don't panic at all when you talk about they need to play better defense in this. And he knew that all of a sudden you look up and they smoke a team that was in first place in the Western Conference for everything. The worse haven't been this year, whatever because the expectations are so high. You look up today, and they have the number one seed in the Western Conference. And coming back on Friday night. Ooh, that's nice. And like that they're right here. Exactly. They are some I I wanted to mention because I read about this. And I was just just appalled appalled that someone that I- seemingly is intelligent because as something so stupid. This interim president from Michigan State University. John engler. Said this and he was doing a it was an editorial board meeting Friday with the Detroit News anglers said women and for those that don't remember you. Sure, you do but all the women there were sexually assaulted raped by by Larry Nassar, who's spending the rest of his life in jail. Rightfully so came together. And had the courage enough to to share their story with with with other people and the more the shared their story. The more that they they they came on board. I think ultimately there is over a hundred one hundred twenty two hundred and twenty three women shared their story. It just it was heartbreaking to watch them having to get up there and relive, you know, the humiliation degradation, maybe the embarrassment whatever word you want to use. Is to be able to do that for the first few took a lot for everyone to take a lot. But the more that came forward to speak the more that decided they wanted to speak, and they had the courage and the strength because they were there with with other women that went to the same things that they went to and you could tell it was an easy for him to get up there and speak in front of a camera, apparently John angler, the interim president for Michigan state now no longer the interim he resigned today board was going to give them a choice, whether resigned or will fire you, and he resigned had this to say who said women sexually assaulted by the now imprisoned Nassar had been in the spotlight in her quotes still enjoying that moment at times, you know, the awards and the recognition with the the the the I got sexually molested or I got raped by Larry Nassar award. When did they start giving that one out the recognition? Do you think they wanted to relive the moment of their life? You think they're the million bucks? They may get is going to alleviate all that pain, all the mental torture. They've gone through their entire lives. And can you imagine going through that you're young girl you trust this guy? Wine you trust him. He's an adult. He's an authority figure. And even though you may think something's going wrong and thinking, well, he must know what he's doing. You know, he's he's not a doctor visa the head trainer. And he does the Olympic team. And he must know what he's doing. And then some of these girls try to tell other adults and other adults don't believe him because they're like water split the adult. He knows what he's doing and just to have to live with that your entire life. And I always think about these these women now that had to go through periods of OB who knows with intimacies lake for them where they don't want to be touched in a certain way, don't trust a man or don't trust something because of what they had to go through when when they were younger and this idiot. You can't be put in jail for Sansom stupid. If you could he'd be going, but this guy thinks they're enjoying their time. They're they're they're enjoying reliving these moments in their lives. I mean, there's still living him. I can't imagine. They're all done with them that I don't know how long I don't want to think about how long that stays with you to tar breaking to think about how long that stays with you. And then this guy who you would think being a president of a university is is intelligent me would have to be reasonably intelligent. He says something like that a still enjoying that moment at times, you know, in the sponge showing enjoying the moment. You know, the awards and recognition I didn't know they gave the awards in the recognition. And I I you the really enjoyed core. Yeah. I guarantee you those women would give back the million and a half. And then some for this to never have happened where they could just go be gymnasts go to Michigan state beyond the US Olympic team and not have to deal with any of this. Because what they've had to go through the money. Doesn't money doesn't help that. They can't get inside your head and change. What you think money can get inside your head and help you deal with intimacy issues and all the things trust issues and things are going to have to deal with over the course of your life having to relive this and probably still people questioning whether you you felt what you felt there. He did what he did. Because we'll day is the he was a pro he he knows what he's he knows what he's doing. You were just seven or nine or ten what do, you know? For him to come out and say something that insensitive again, if you can be put in jail for for for stupid words, it'd be convicted he'd being jailed tomorrow he might be in jail tonight. I mean, they wasted. No time. Thanks, but no, thanks. You are out of here. I just appalled when I read that like how could come out of someone's mouth that stupid that stupid would be shocking. The fact that that came out of someone's mouth who again, I'm assuming is the interim president of a major university is is reasonably intelligent. Shocking absolutely shocked in I would be I would just be furious. If I were those women I'd be furious. If I were their loved ones, their parents, their significant others, whatever I yeah. We asked for this. This is we were loving this. We're trying to hang onto this moment for as long as we can hang onto this moment. Guess what John? They're probably gonna hang out of this moment a lot longer than you think when they're by themselves in their home. They still having to deal with the the mental trauma that goes with something like this. I it just. I couldn't believe what I read that. Really good. You know, what's amazing about it is for people who like we make a living talking, and you do it live. And so if you say something stupid, you pretty much know it right away. It's amazing that a guy could rise to this level because he's had to do this. He's had to speak with people. He's had to speak publicly. He's had to represent, and I know I know his exact background, but you rise to the level of a president of a university. You gotta you gotta know what you're saying. You've got to be able to answer questions in a way that doesn't offend. But you know, kind of what you're doing in that way. And then to come out and be this incentive. In other words to intimate that these these girls would enjoy being in the spotlight in this fashion is unbelievable. He would be unbelievable to think you rose to this level. And this is the kind of stuff. What that's not even tone deaf. It's death period. It's like you didn't hear you had no idea. What was going on? You heard nothing, and you just got plopped into this. And and that's a lame excuse me. There is no excuse that. Could you have how could that be your thought? I don't let alone. Was it like they're enjoying this? This is Chris Gregory. They're getting on TV. There. She goes with another award a war. You kidding me? What exactly a word? And what do they have the Larry Nassar is or something they have little awards a handout, I mean idiot. I can't believe that this guy again, you'd think reasonably intelligent, but apparently not Iran Ben is gonna join us coming up next. We'll catch up on Saint Mary's basketball off to a tune one start in conference eleven and seven overall haven't caught up with a awhile, and he's always fun. So we'll do it. Coming up next on the here on these sports, cedar enemy the latest. From the Chilton auto body traffic.
