Our podcasting elves are busily working on a showcase Christmas special for you which will be ready in a week or two but the meantime our penultimate Podcasting Showcase for 2011 features 3 writers who were involved in our Arts Council of Ireland funded series ‘The Writers Passage’.  From the series itself we visit episode 3 as we venture to the bogs above the town of Lanesborough County Longford with Jack Harte as he explains the premis of his novel ‘ In The Wake of The Bagger’ and though not from the series Tommy Sands who presented episode 6 for us based on his book ‘The Songman’, sings a song about going back to  his native County Down and the presenter of episode 5 author and historian Steve Dunford reads from ‘The Irish Highwaymen’ which was the subject of his episode of ‘The Writer’s Passage’.  We also have poetry from Alan Murphy and music by Michele Ann Kelly .  If you are new to hyperlinks and the web you can click on the highlighted text to go straight to the pages mentioned, simply click on the writers name to visit their own page her on Podcasts.ie or on the episode number to visit ‘The Writers Passages’ we mention or on the name The Writer’s Passage to go to the landing page for the series.
