Since the last time we posted about it, two new episodes of soundings were put up! As always, it’s downloadable in iTunes, for those who don’t have that the link above is useful.
About the two episodes, taken from Lisa’s facebook page:
This week onSoundings Culture PodcastI nearly die of fright at ‘Ghost Stories’, but then the Gloaming documentary ‘Moment to Moment’, Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ and John Cleese’s lecture on creativity makes up for it.
Eek. NewSoundings Culture Podcastis up, this the ‘Desensitization of Lisa Hannigan’ portion. I didn’t think I was too sensitive!..though my squeals tell a different story. bit.ly/soundingspod
In this episode, Dylan and Lisa see the new Lloyd Webber musical Stephen Ward, based on the Profumo affair - and get a bit of background by reading Richard Davenport Hines’ An English Affair. Plus Dylan insists on making Lisa sit through the Richard Curtis movie About Time. Plus some new music from The Gloaming.
From Lisa’s facebook page:
A great book, a bad musical and a much better than you’d imagine film. And a rant about ‘Love Actually’. (AARGH)
