Episode 23: Catherine O’Flynn and Peter Fletcher

Meet Catherine O'Flynn and Peter Fletcher. Cath's first novel, What Was Lost was set in a shopping centre much like the one where we did this interview. Husband Peter has been documenting his sneezes, and spills the beans (and elastic bands) on what it was like working as a postie.

What with magma dragons and volcano (shipping) forecasts, we've developed quite a thing for vulcanology lately, so imagine our excitement when Eyjafjallajoekull spewed forth this week. Is it safe to go outside? Will we ever eat bananas again? Did we ever eat them before? For an exclusive breakdown of the situation, we turn to volcano enthusiast and friend of the show, Dr Ralph Harrington.

Intrepid Dave Green reports from Dorkbot #68, before joining us at a swanky West London bar for some renegade snacking inbetween disapproving glances from the waiter. When the munching noises get a bit too much, similar information can be found on Dave's website. And remember, buying this podcast on tape is still possible, if not likely.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
