Talking Bollox episode 5 – Cultural appropriation bogeyman

Happy Halloween!
Tonight episode is all spooks and scares! And a little bit about animals and nature… And some discussion of positivity vs. negativity in storytelling and how Christopher Lee was so awesome. But mostly scary spoops!
Our lovely guest this episode and storyteller is Stephen Jack. I even give some reciting a go so I hope you enjoy two original pieces from Stephen and I!
Stay safe this Halloween and keep those skeletons sober!

Talking Bollox – Episode 3 – It gets better

Sorry for the long absent, your host, aka me, has started a business course and along with a few other little setbacks it cause this episode to be an entire month late! Hopefully this won’t happen again but frankly I ain’t going to make any promises and just do my best.

Today’s episode with our guests Katie Flemming and Keith Byrne,  is all about animation in Ireland, mainly studying in Ireland. The utter freedom gap from Secondary school to college, After college, what do you do? Are people who enjoy animating wizards????? Some insider news about the new Danger Mouse cartoon by Boulder media. Why does college hate anime and your host embarrassing sings a bunch of themes song!

Hope you guys enjoy, don’t forget to like, share and comment!
