Hi all; if you want more thoughts on the cultural and social role of stories and storytelling, I’ve contributed to a podcast! Technecast is the official podcast by researchers at Techne Doctoral Training Partnership (who are kindly funding the PhD which I started this academic year), and I was very gratified to be asked to record an episode about my current work. You’ll hear me talking about eco-storytelling, identity and urban landscapes – as well as stories’ place in our lives, the formation of folklore studies itself, and musical subcultures besides! And the whole thing is available publicly at the link below, and on your podcast app of choice.
Enjoy! And f you want to comment or chat about my ideas, please get in touch. Hope to see you soon.
