By gar, it's been a while. The path to release for the latest if:book Australia podcast has been long and tortuous, involving an unholy mix of technological failure, travel, and noisy meetings in the background. But you don't want excuses, you want to know about the talented Freya Wright-Brough and her penchant for extreme writing vis-à-vis the 24-Hour Writing Challenge.
In this episode of the podcast, Simon and Freya swap horror stories of actually following through on 24-hour writing events.
In Cool Stuff We Found On The Internet™, Emily and Simon dissect Booktrack and explore the benefits and drawbacks of creating books with soundtracks. Check out Emily's experiment with Booktrack in a story titled 'Seeing Things'. It's good.
This episode's featured artist is purported to be a 1935 recording of the Mills Cavalcade Orchestra with vocals by the Boswell Sisters. Is it really the Boswells or is it the more delightfully named Three Dollies? Does it matter to you? The song, though is most definitely Lovely Liza Lee. It's not quite doo wop, but it'll do.
