Halloween Special – (Season 2 Pilot)

We're back with a spooky special!
Ready for Season Two to kick off next week, we've come together and made a special episode to celebrate the spookiest time of the year.

Discussing the origins of pumpkin carving, Irish tales and haunted painting – get yourself a bowl of assorted sweets, put in those plastic fangs you've owned for years and dive in.

Note: we had a slight issue with our audio but our audio technician (Nosferatu) has worked his ghoulish magic to make the listening experience the best it can be.

Hexafoils (Pilot)

Hexafoils (Pilot)

WARNING! This is unedited and contains rather strong language. We don't swear throughout but get a little fruity in around the middle.

This is a pilot for the podcast, so has not been edited fully. This means there will be guffs, burps and generally rough sounds as we practice recording and try to define our format for future episodes.

Katie and Vincent explore the oddities of the creative sphere—this week looking at Hexafoils. These symbols of folk art and agricultural superstition are explored through spelling, giggling and sillyness.
