52 episodes young + Halloween

A small measure of how busy I’ve been with the Save the Forest campaign and the release of my book Tomorrow, We Will Live Here is how long it has taken me to mention this wonderful podcast. Colin Fraser, our intrepid producer, did an excellent job of splicing together the choicest moments of the past year of podcasts featuring some of our favourite moments. If you’ve not listened to our podcast, this is a great example of the variety and talent on display every week. Also, since it was Halloween, we have the world-premier of White Heath‘s version of Goethe’s ‘The Erlking’. It is a fantastic track for any time of year. So make sure to give it a listen if you haven’t already! Here’s the link to info about the Erlking, including lyrics in German & English http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_Erlk%C3%B6nig Ryan
