The Podcasts


It's holiday time for some of our listeners — Thanksgiving week in the U.S. — and the mailbox is empty, so Carole offers some holiday programming of her own: a reading of an entire story (also her own) called "Love and The Gentle Art of Flying." It's from her collection Missing Persons, and if you've ever wondered why some people are obsessed with airplanes and flying, this surreal little venture will do nothing whatsoever to enlighten you. It might make you smile, though. Relax and enjoy!

Carole comments on the fall book prize season in Canada, and promises listeners to pop a bottle of champagne "on air" if she ever gets lucky enough to win something. Our featured story this week is "Getting Wood," by American writer Ann Pancake, who writes with a keen ear for Appalachian speech. Carole checks out two good novels she almost overlooked, and invites you to submit your published work and your book picks. Go to the show's Facebook page (WORDS TO GO PODCAST), read submission guidelines, leave your posts and become a fan.

Podcast #1 - Carole invites you to submit your published stories, then intros herself by talking about her life as a binge-reader, radio-rocker and broadcast journalist, a pretty good background for a book-and podcast combo. This episode's featured short story is "Where You Live Now," by Canadian writer Mary Swan. Relax and listen. Carole follows up with a few oldies she's just read - stories by the surrealist writer Bruno Schulz and four novellas by Edith Wharton. What are you reading? She'll tell you how to let our listeners know.
