Poetry: Like You? (2017)
Teaser epsiode: Like You? written and read by Bron Rauk-MItchell Another bonus episode to whet your appetite  until the regularly scheduled episodes begin in May 2019. It seems there were more test readings in my files than I realised, so I'm converting them to audio files to upload as bonus eps.

Poetry: Dance with my Shadows (2017)
Another teaser epsiode. Dance with My Shadows - written and read by Bron Rauk-MItchell. Regularly scheduled episodes begin in May 2019, but until then I've found another test poetry reading, from 2017, in the archives.

Plans + a reading of Puss-in-Boots (from 2017)
Teaser episode. 2017 Flashback: Plans plus Puss-in-Boots; written and read by Bron Rauk-Mitchell. In 2017 I recorded a test video for my youtube channel, where I discussed my plans for a storytime webshow plus I read my version of Puss-in-Boots (published in 2013 in Teapot Tales: A collection of Unique Fairy Tales). Because The StoryWeaver Podcast is a positive step towards making that webshow a reality, I am sharing the audio from that video here on the podcast. Regular podcast episodes will start in May, but I hope this will whet your appetite in the meantime.

Poetry Reading: Our Last Kiss
TEASER: Our Last Kiss - written and read by Bron Rauk-Mitchell This is just a small sample to whet your appetite, until more episodes are ready.  Our Last Kiss was written on January 4, 2017; and it was this poem that reignited the spark for me, which is why I have chosen it to launch the podcast.
