We're all waiting for something ? But what is waiting ? Why should we wait and when should we move ? Waiting may well be the one great virtue we must all learn to master.
In today's wofflathon, I lead you through some thoughts about the value of the audio medium for story telling. In so doing I discuss why we share stories and podcasts, what's behind our drive to tell stories and to share them, the value of stories, the power of audio stories, audio as a carrier of memory, sharing through audio, audio signatures of places, people, animals and plants and the engineering of soundscapes.

Hi folks, TSM19 is still being edited, so I thought I’d post TSM20 first. In this evening monologue, I talk a little about my experience of Christianity and my feelings and thoughts about Christianity and Jesus and then I introduce you to the poetry of one of my heroes Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul 2). I am not very good at reading poetry out loud when I’m tired but I’m optimistic you’ll get a feel for how beautiful and powerful these poems really are. They say as much about Karol’s understanding of god, as his experience of being a man who feels separate from god, who yearns for total communion.
Some of you might be surprised at who I consider to be my heroes. But such is the mystery of man, that none of us ever really understands another !
