#1523 ‘Limits’ – EWF Special

What happens when you send seven writers and seven producers to Docklands and force them to make a radio for a whole day? Well, it’s interesting.
All the Best teamed up with the Emerging Writers Festival to develop new stories on the theme ‘limits’ and this is what they created. We were at the city limits, on a time limit – it seemed fitting.
This episode features stories created on that day – a poem about the unluckiest man in history, a sci-fi tale set at the Docklands which may or may not be fiction, and the story of family pushed to their limits.

#1425 Mixed Tape Memoirs Live at EWF

This episode is about that song.  You know the one. You hear it, and no matter where you are, or who you’re with, you’re transported to a time when you were so in love that you seemed drunk. The song you know that still makes you feel like a lovesick teenager every time you hear it.

‘Mixed Tape Memoirs: Love and Lust’ was an event hosted by The Lifted Brow at the Emerging Writers’ Festival, where they asked writers to tell a true story about their life based on a song. This week on All the Best we share some with you – they’re adorable, heartbreaking, sexy, and sometimes a bit porn-y or gross. Just like love.
