#1347 Naughty or Nice

It’s that time of year again.  

We wanted to celebrate the festivities with some fun, original and slightly naughty stories.  

Bard to the Bone

Bard To The Bone create completely original improvised Shakespearean plays.  The ensemble usually perform to live audiences, but they came into the studio to create a completely new Christmas story just for All the Best listeners.  This is Shakespeare, but not as you know it.

This tale will take you on wild and strange ride into a land far away, with pine-cones, a rising ocean, an unlikely hero and a Christmas twist.  Warning!  Things are about to get weird.

Voices/ Actors:  Bryce Halliday, Michael Gregory, Marko Mustac and Jon Williams

Music Composer:  Bryce Halliday

Producer:  Merran Winchester

#1335 Mama, Guns & Jungle Fever

Romance, Love, Shot guns, Cigarettes, Nudity, Guns ‘n’Roses….

This episode we encounter stories where romance has taken people off the beaten track and into bizarre situations.  We also get into the mind of Miles Merrill, a spoken word poet as he speaks about his experience and his poetry.

 

My Mothers Date

Sarah Low had heard a story growing up…about a date her mum went on when she was a teenager.  It seemed a like a strange way to romance someone.  It was definitely not a traditional date.

Tales of Sin & Virtue- Miles Merrill

They decided to get out of town, so they drove their car 20 miles down a dirt road to the middle of nowhere.  But, they weren’t alone… Miles Merrill tells his story at Tales of Sin & Virtue, a live storytelling event.

This is Miles

Miles Merrill has been at the heart of the Spoken Word scene in Australia for over a decade.  His passion and commitment to the art has seen the development of the National Poetry Slam which includes over 1000 poets each year who get up to share there stories.   He has pioneered the non-profit literary company  Word Travels who are about to host a three day festival.  Where does his love of language come from?  And what drives him?  Merran Winchester went to find out more.
