One of the projects I have been working on for the last few months has hit an exciting point – the Literature Network today publishes its first spoken word podcast as part of the Tripod project. Its a really amazing feeling when projects like this come to fruition. A year ago this was a conversation between four people about how great it would be to have a literature podcast for the region. And now here it is!


The brand new Tripod Podcast brings you the liveliest and best spoken-word work from the Three Cities of Derby, Leicester and Nottingham. This debut episode features performances from Rob Gee, Daljit Nagra, Helen Frances of Flying Donkeys and Mark Gwynne Jones and the Psychicbread. Listen online at the Tripod website, download to your computer or subscribe to our regular feed via I-Tunes or any good podcatcher. Let us know what you think!

Listen to Podcast here!

Watch out for the Tripod magazine launching in early March 2007 and available from libraries and other venues around the Three Cities.

Tripod is a Literature Network project supported by Three Cities Create and Connect.
