Words To That Effect is back! Episode 24 is a recording of September’s live show for the Dublin Podcast Festival.
This episode is a story about a long-forgotten nervous disease. But it’s also a story of science and culture, psychology and mental health, feminism and creativity, war and masculinity. It’s about ghost stories, science fiction and cowboy novels…
The Words To That Effect live show is a reworked and expanded version of Episode 6 of the podcast. So, if you’ve listened to Ep6 it may sound somewhat familiar. However, this version is not only twice as long but features live music composed and performed by Ken McCabe.
The live show was a double-bill with Helen Zaltzman’s fabulously good podcast, The Allusionist. The show featured a story about the fastest typists in the world, and subsequently became this episode. Go listen, it’s great!
The Science and Fiction of Edgar Rice Burroughs
The story for the Words To That Effect live show was based on research I did for my new book, The Science and Fiction of Edgar Rice Burroughs (Gylphi Press). Did I mention you can buy a copy on the Gylphi publisher’s site here or on Amazon here?
As mentioned, music in the live show was by Ken McCabe: musician, composer, producer, and sound designer. You can find out more about his work here.
