We’re dipping into our archives this week to bring you two stories of forces coming together, like a hard wooden cricket bat and a mouth full of baby teeth, or our first story, which takes place on the frontline of a battle between two passionate groups in duck hunting season.
‘Duck Season’ by Leona Hameed [repeat]
Every year on the same day, duck hunters and duck protectors face-off on a lake. It’s the opening day of duck hunting season, and neither group is leaving until they’ve got what they came for.
Originally broadcast in 2015.
Music: With Stars for Eyes by h+, Black Lake by Real Estate, Inner Lakes by North Hive and Submerging Blue Black by Podington Bear
‘Like Strawberries’ by Zacha Rosen [repeat]
The most important thing Michael owned, apart from his collection, was his toy cricket bat. Most parents would give their children a plastic one, but Michael’s mum and dad were completists. They’d very carefully looked for a replica ashes cricket bat. But, more importantly, it was made of some very hard wood.
This fiction piece was written and produced by Zacha Rosen.
